Finally The Answers Peanut Allergy Sufferers Are Looking For

Contributed by: Dr. Michael C. Young of The Peanut Allergy Answer Book

(NAPSA) - The fact that the incidence of peanut allergy has doubled in the past five years may be why more and more people must read The Peanut Allergy Answer Book, 2nd Edition, written by award-winning allergist Dr. Michael C. Young. Peanut allergies continue to increase, so the impact of this medical problem, particularly in young children, is enormous.

The Peanut Allergy Answer Book
Since the 2001 publication of The Peanut Allergy Answer Book, there has been groundbreaking research published in the field of peanut allergy and anaphylaxis in medical literature. This research includes new diagnostic tests, new vaccines and therapies, and new information on the history of peanut allergy. There has also been a great increase in public awareness of the societal impact of peanut allergy, in schools and other childcare facilities, in restaurants and in the food and restaurant industry.

This attention has led to the publication of guidelines for schools in the management of food allergies and anaphylaxis, to legislation such as the Food Allergen Labeling Consumer Protection Act of 2006, and proposed legislation for restaurant guidelines for food-allergic consumers.

The Peanut Allergy Answer Book, 2nd Edition by Michael C. Young, M.D. (Fair Winds Press, paperback) answers more questions, and is packed with easy-to-understand, up-to-date information. It includes the latest research findings and new federal legislation, as well as real-life allergy-management success stories and what future treatments might look like. Learn the answers to the most pressing questions and concerns about peanut allergy:

  • Why has peanut allergy increased so much in the past five to 10 years?

  • What is the difference between being peanut-sensitive and peanut-allergic?

  • Will I outgrow my peanut allergy?

  • How do I keep my peanut-allergic child safe in school?

  • Can skin contact or the odor of peanuts cause an anaphylactic reaction?
