Re: Canada's 9 most common food allergies
Understanding food safety for allergy sufferers By Adrienne Robertson
As a parent of a child with life threatening food allergies, I am not impressed by this article. I found the information incomplete and disjointed and am at a loss to understand the point to this article. It certainly does nothing to raise awareness nor does it address any of the issues surrounding food allergies.
I am surprised that you did not offer the following links:

Daughter: asthma, allergies to egg, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, most legumes (not soy and green beans) & penicillin. Developing hayfever type allergies.
Husband: no allergies
Me: Oral Allergy Syndrome, Allergic to Birch trees

While it certainly wasn't the best article I've read on food allergies (and they could have offered the links that you've mentioned Susan - instead of an advertisement to buy someone's book) -- I think it did (however simplistically) convey some of the difficulty in avoiding one's allergens. I think a lot of people, when they hear that someone they know has a food allergy, think, OK -- so, just avoid peanuts, or just avoid dairy, and they don't realize all of foods affected (some allergens more than others too).
