Sofy123, I'm better posting on the board because then I'll actually be able to make my links clickable for you, whereas I haven't figured that out in my new e-mail system.
Obviously, you have found this site. Did you check out the Links heading with their vast assortment of links? Did you check out links, separate from the Discussion Boards on this site?
When I'm looking for information that can be printed, I usually go to [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy"]www.cadvision.com/allergy[/url] . For finding out information about specific foods and their manufacturers, I go to [url="http://www.nuconnexions.com"]www.nuconnexions.com[/url]
For non-parent friendly information, more suited to doctors, I go to [url="http://www.oma.org"]www.oma.org[/url] and click on Health Policy Issues (I believe it's called) and then scroll down for the articles on PA and Anaphylaxis.
Another PA parent has a website [url="http://www.leighruby.com"]www.leighruby.com[/url] where she has just posted her new PA article. Also, I recently started a thread, under Schools, looking for information for Parents' Night, and a few people provided me with some other really good links that I did not previously have.
I think if you go through this board, through the Links section of the Discussion Board and then through the Links section separate from the discussion board and then whatever everyone e-mails you, you should have quite a few links at your fingertips. When it comes to PA, I always come here first and then wander further when I feel the need. Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Two great links .....one is the position statement by the Medical Professional Resource Center. It is the position statement for Anaphylaxis in schools and other child-care settings
[url="http://www.aaaai.org/professional/physicianreference/positionstatements/ps34.stm"]http://www.aaaai.org/professional/physicianreference/positionstatements/ps34.stm[/url]
Another is a very comprehensive explaination of all aspects of this stupid allergy and many answers to questions that we have......well worth reading!

Hope they help
