Allergens are all around us: in the air, on our pets, and in our food. According to USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, accidental exposure to food allergens leads to fifty thousand emergency room visits and causes at least 150 deaths in the United States each year. Some organizations estimate that allergies and asthma affect one in five Americans, and many people suffer from allergies their entire lives. There is no cure for allergies, but you can take steps to prevent a reaction and to control symptoms. This book provides case studies of people living with allergies and describes the causes, symptoms, diagnoses, and treatments of common allergies. You'll learn that, with the proper precautions, allergies and asthma do not have to slow you down.
