I need this info for something I am submitting to be published and need the most recent statistics and findings. Do you have any info or links?
The Food Allergy Network ([url]http://www.foodallergy.org[/url]) may have statistics about this. I am very interested in what you find out and also what you're publishing... please follow up and let us know. I've heard that people with peanut allergies has doubled in the last decade.
What is it that you are compiling exactly? I don't know where you would get stats info from. Are you doing research?
Please let us know if you find out anything!
I have written a short magazine type story and would like to include the most recent findings.

How is the article going? Just wanted to touch base and see how your progress was going. Let us know!

My allergist gave me a link to a website by Dr. Weisnagel which is kept up to date with posted responses by other doctors and researchers. It has a lot of information from various studies. The address is:
