It has been estimated that between 5 and 10 percent of the world's population suffers from food allergies, and the consensus among medical professionals is that these numbers are still growing. Out of every classroom in America, there are at least two teens who have food allergies, and every three minutes someone is taken to the emergency room as a result of an allergic reaction. From school cafeterias to movie theatres to sporting arenas - not to mention restaurants - teens encounter countless allergens. Although parents and health professionals are on the alert for food allergies, teens themselves must take the steps needed to ensure their health and well-being. Jessica Reino offers helpful and practical information that will aid teens in managing their sensitivities.
