Abstract: Why is allergic disease increasing so rapidly, especially in young infants? What are the environmental factors contributing to this? What is going wrong with the immune system and can we prevent it? When is it safe to give children peanut products? What are the current treatment options for allergies? What is epigenetics? Where is the research headed? These are some of the many questions challenging not only parents and allergy sufferers, but whole societies now facing the global rise in immune diseases. Drawing on the latest research, The Allergy Epidemic provides clear, no-nonsense descriptions in the very personable style Susan's patients have come to expect.
