<p>Donna,</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>Thank you,</p>

<p>Hi Nicole,<br />
I have written a short magazine type story and would like to include the most recent findings. It is my way of publicizing allergy difficulties in hope of helping the general public as far as awareness and understanding, and also perhaps finding others with allergies who need support and information.<br />
Thanks<br />

Still looking for stats, esp on anaphylaxis caused deaths. This is hard to come by because it is usually not listed as the cause of death.<br />

I believe the CDC publishes a journal yearly called something like the morbidity & mortality something or other - I know that they list the deaths caused by allergic anaphylaxis (sp?) in it. Not a cheerful publication - but it puts it all out there in black & white. I'll check on it & try to come up with a name etc.

Hi
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:
