This new edition in Lucent's Nutrition and Health series discusses food allergies. The most common food allergies are discussed in detail, as are the physical effects of food allergies (including mild and severe reactions), how people with food allergies stay safe and avoid ingredients they are allergic to, how food allergies are treated and how people, especially kids and teenagers, cope with the social complications that come with having a food allergy. Doctors, researchers, and people living with food allergies are quoted throughout the text and full source citations are provided. Lists of sources for further research - including organizations to contact - are also included, along with a glossary and detailed subject index.
