Written for students, consumers and health care professionals, this guide to food allergies discusses the fundamentals of immunology, symptoms and diagnostic protocols, the theories behind the formation of allergies and tips on how to "live in the real world" with allergies and hypersensitivities. Richer, a registered and licensed dietitian and medical writer, uses clinical studies to explain why food allergies, intolerances and hypersensitivities occur, and she provides practical strategies for avoiding risks such as cross-contamination and anaphylactic shock. This volume also includes a Q&A section, appendices for non-allergenic foods and a list of online resources for further research.
