Food Allergy Counseling: National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Animation Helps Explain Food Allergy

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has developed a three-minute animation that shows how the immune system responds to a food allergen and what you should do to avoid potential exposures.

Some food allergy facts:

An estimated 15 million Americans have food allergies
Food allergies appear to be on the rise in all industrialized countries
A food allergy reaction sends someone to the hospital emergency department every three minutes

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) created and distributed these free food allergy guidelines. The food allergy guidelines are worth reading through and discussing with your board certified medical heath provider.
