Publisher Comments:

From how to immediately recognize and treat an extreme allergic reaction to tips on how food allergy sufferers may lead normal lives, this A-to-Z guide informs sufferers themselves as well as those around them how to deal with this often deadly condition. With information on the escalating number of food allergy incidences each year and how to determine whether or not the condition really is food allergy related, the narrative examines all aspects of the issue in an easy-to-read, layperson’s tone. In addition to identifying and addressing specific food allergies—cow’s milk, hen’s egg, wheat, peanut and legume, tree nut, seed and spice, seafood, fruit and vegetable—as well as food additive reactions, the handy guide provides a series of true-life stories to further illustrate the often heartbreaking risks of allergic reactions to these foods. This comprehensive personal and public health resource also offers insight into cuisines and restaurants likely to be risky, as well as hints on ways to eat out safely.
