If anyone is interested, the current issue of McCall's magazine (featuring Rosie O'Donnell on the cover) has an interesting article on food sensitivies, intolerances, and allergies. The article starts by describing the differences between the three and how many people who are just "intolerant" to certain foods falsely believe they have an allergy. It goes on to cite that only 2% of the population has a true allergy and how serious it can be if you do have an allergy. The article states the manufacturers are becoming more sensitive to the allergy issue, as well as some school systems. It also stated that General Mills and Hershey's were now producing their peanut products such as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in a separate area of the plant as to avoid any contamination of their nut-free products. All in all, it was a good article that didn't "belittle" this allergy.
