Since the mid-1990s, food allergies have shifted into high gear; what used to be a relative rarity has become increasingly commonplace, with scientists estimating that the problem is continuing to get worse. There is currently no cure for food allergies. California State Senate Award-winning expert and author Schwartz examines the evolutionary history of food allergies: what they are, how to prevent them and how to treat them. Severely allergic to seafood herself, Schwartz explains the pragmatic stress involved with managing food allergies, as well as step-by-step solutions with an understanding that food is everywhere and our relationship to food needs to be healthy if we are to stay healthy.
