Food Allergy Facts – Awareness Week, Day 2

Food-allergic reactions cause 203,000 emergency room visits every year, or one every three minutes. Most of these are due to accidental exposure. (JACI, March 2011).

39% of children with food allergies have experienced a severe or life-threatening reaction.

$6 billion per year is spent on food allergy care in the US (according to the CDC).

During this food allergy awareness week, please share these facts with your audiences.

Great article in Forbes today! Even better, I appreciate that each day of FAAW you are posting!

Keep up the good work...I'm going to check out some of your recipes.

Thank you for all that you do for our food allergy community. It does take a village.

I would love to share some of your corporate articles on my food allergy and asthma blog site too.

May I email you a few questions so I may include some quotes from you?

If a practitioner suspect allergies, they should buck-up and refer the patient to a qualified Allergy specialist. Then once the diagnosis is made, they can help the patient find out how to live with it. Erectile Dysfunction Tablets
Thank your health coach for their interest, take the documents they give you, and make an appointment to get to the allergist.
