    Sometime in the past, I actually read a higher figure somewhere... Like 1 in 1000 or something. Wonder what it really is?

    However, I hear this phrase every time I turn around... "I'm allergic"...

    There I go regurgitating hearsay, again. I too wonder what the true number is. If everybody that tells me they are allergic would be there would be a lot less people on this planet.

    When they tell me they are allergic I tell them, "I am too, see that red spot?"

    I cant believe the number of people that claim to be deathly allergic to bee stings. The first thing I ask is if the carry an epi-pen. Out of the the mass of people who claim to be deathly allergic. I have found 2 that actually do carry the pen. A good bunch of them have had to ask what an epi-pen is I wasnt asking just to ask. I was researching marketing strategy. I figured if that many was truly allergic to bee stings. I would be interested in buying stock in the makers of epi-pen.
