May 10-16 is Food Allergy Awareness Week. While some may think that food allergies are just a trend, the truth is that awareness of the millions of people who suffer from food allergies is growing. Many people spend large portions of their lives with discomfort and illness from these kinds of allergies. Some can even be deadly.
FARE is one group working to improve the quality of life and the health of individuals with food allergies, and to provide them hopethrough the promise of new treatments.
“Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) works on behalf of the 15 million Americans with food allergies, including all those at risk for life-threatening anaphylaxis. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in 13 children in the United States”
Whether you have been personally effected by food allergies, or just want to help support the cause stop by FARE’s website today. FARE does fundraising awareness walks all over the US. Find an upcoming walk in your area here.
Our Friend Nutrimom is another wonderful source for inspiration and advice when it comes to food allergies. Her book, The Stepping Stones To Food Allergies, is a great resource for anyone in the beginning stages of understanding the food allergies for themselves or for a child or other loved one.
