Allergies In Your Head?

Peanuts and WalnutsSomeone once asked me if my food allergies — the ones that require me to carry emergency medication so that I can keep breathing if I eat something with peanuts — could be all in my head. I pointed out that they can be diagnosed by a blood test, and asked how my head could influence the results of a test on a vial taken to a lab three states away.

This is just one example of the need to increase awareness of how real and serious food allergies can be. In October, Katie and I will be walking to support the Food Allergy Network’s mission to promote research, education, awareness and advocacy. We’d appreciate your support!
