pThis just came in my e-mail today frombr /
Safety Alerts. It is about how anaphylaxisbr /
is more of a problem then many realize.br /
They said that 3.29 million to more thanbr /
40 million in the US are at risk forbr /
anaphylaxis. It also talks about thebr /
importance of epinephrine. Just thoughtbr /
I'd share in case anyone was interested.br /

I thought that article was great. My son had a reaction about a month ago and had swelling in his throat,eyes and had hives on his face just by being touched by someone who had ate a Reese cup. They put him on steriods for 3 days. We almost had to use the epipen. I am going to print the article out for my sons teachers.
