Aside, not intended to derail OP's threat: I have wondered, too, why allergies seem to be known in some geographical areas, and not in others. Seems odd. Could it be to do with the way foods are cultivated? Or with genetics?
I know someone who did their doctor thesis on allergies. One of the things she said at her presentation was that there are various studies which indicate that some food allergies are cultural.

The most common food allergy in the US is (was, it's 24 years ago now) peanuts. The most common food allergy in CH at the time? Celery.
