The world of food allergy is action packed – new research findings, new theories and so much more! Under this category, I will try to keep pace with this dynamic world by adding links and articles as they occur in the arena of food allergy.
1. The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (http://www.foodallergy.org/) : FAAN is the first ‘go to’ site for anyone with a food allergy hence it features first on my list. According to FAAN’s website their mission is ‘to raise public awareness, to provide advocacy and education, and to advance research on behalf of all those affected by food allergies and anaphylaxis. ‘
I have benefitted enormously by being a FAAN member…their newsletter is very useful. However, I find their phone assistance an even more useful feature. The nutritionist is usually able to give input on any food item you may have questions about.
The amount of good work done by this organization is worth supporting – I have been a part of their annual walk to raise awareness and their fundraising. The annual walk is loads of fun and definitely worth being a part of!
