Re: 22 Things We Wish You Could Understand About Food Allergies

aboreem1969 ·
my son has milk allergy and I find it very difficult to think now about joining kindergarten. The problem is that allergy is very high -even the around smell of cheese can cause big allergy. I am living in Kuwait and awareness in schools is still low. Is there new promising ways to treat? Thanks

Hi aboreem1969 - it is definitely scary to send them off to school. It sounds like your son reacts to airborne proteins which makes it even more challenging. There are a number of treatment options being researched. I don't know of anything new specifically geared toward milk - many are for peanut, but they have not branched out to other allergens.

Could gelatin replace xanthan gum? I'd be making other substitutions and DS has never had a "real "cookie. , so if it was a little off from the original consistency, it's OK.

I would give it a try...or I might even omit it. I made muffins with a similar flour combo the other night and it wasn't until later that I realized I didn't put in the xanthan. But those did have more applesauce which has pectin. What other changes are you making? I think that might be a factor too. I just find gelatin rather gummy.

Hi, is there a typo in this summary? I may just be tired, but I don't see how this reflects a risk reduction (at all, let alone 67%): Thanks, Naomi However, when the authors evaluated the infants that were able to maintain the study protocol by eating these foods consistently each week, they did find a significant difference in rates of food allergy: - 4% in the early introduction group versus - 3% in the standard group On Fri, Mar 4, 2016 at 3:39 PM, Kids With Food Allergies <...

• Ben Franklin Bridge : The Benjamin Franklin Bridge’s visibility from 10 miles away and its proximity to myriad public gathering spaces in Philadelphia and major urban centers in New Jersey makes it a prime canvas for an LED row of lights that dots the bridge span on both sides and changes and moves depending on the season or the holiday. Sometimes the lights appear to “chase” the passing commuter trains that traverse the bridge, and other times they glow in varying colors — red, white and...

Tower of Americas in San Antonio, TX. If they do it, then I would hope the Alamodome would follow as well. Both would look awesome driving down the highway and seeing the teal lights radiating from them.

In an earlier post, I noted the Bicentennial Tower in Erie, PA. I would like to add to that the Bayfront Convention Center, which is very near to the Bicentennial Tower. The convention center can light up the peak of its roofline and was just in the news for installing new lights that can be virtually any color. I hope you will approach these entities and bring awareness to the Erie, PA, region!

The San Francisco City Hall is a National Historic Landmark building that illuminates the exterior of the building every evening with over 220 incandescent lighting fixtures. They have done color displays for other important causes. It would be great to see it teal and the lighting is already in place.
