I came across this blog today.


There isn't much info on it yet. I wonder if it's really him writing this. I don't see any ads on there so I think it's legit.

No ads? The whole blog seems to be a promotional piece for the "Food Allergies for Dummies" book that he co-wrote. I'm not saying that's a bad thing (in fact, because of that tie I think there's no doubt that Dr. Wood is really writing this blog) but it does seem to be one of the primary goals of the blog.

I just meant that it didn't look like a blog that had been created just to create ad revenue, as many blogs are.
I suspect there won't be much of importance posted there - they may be Dr. Wood's words but like you said, it's probably just a vehicle to sell the book. Unless, it gets a lot of comments and questions and maybe then it might develop into a good source of information (or disappear!)

I can confirm that the photo is actually a picture of Dr. Wood, though I guess someone using his name could find his picture somewhere (my child sees Dr. Wood, so obviously I know what he looks like!).
I agree the blog sounds like a promotional campaign for his book, Food Allergy for Dummies. It sounds a bit silly how often the book is mentioned!
By the way, has anyone read this book? I'm curious how it is.

I've read the book and its actually very good. I've been "in this" for 6 years and I'd really list this as one of the top books.
Its very comprehensive and Dr Wood does not have that "tone" that some allergists tend to have--that allergy parents are always over reacting. He "gets it"
I'd really recommend it!
Take care,

I ordered this book last week. I have 10 of the "For Dummies" guides for other subjects and I have found them to be very informative without being boring. I will let everyone know how it goes.

I am a little over half way. I like the book. I search the internet for new information on almost a daily basis but I still learned a couple of things reading his book. His language is easy to understand. I also think since he has a peanut allergy he know of what he speaks. Actually, I bought two additional copies one for each side of my family to help them understand food allergies more fully.

Noticed in the listed links at his website that another food allergy website is listed -- but no mention of PA.com. Is that because other (Kids with Food Allergies) is incorporated as non-profit & PA.com is not?

I wonder where the blog went? Tried the contact e-mail but says is not a valid e-mail? I wish I had printed out some of the better comments to read again.

It had a really good blog that was being added to every few days but it's not there. I wonder if there are some problems with it. I'll check back again in a few days.
