Hello,

Along with the new law that went into effect Jan. 1st for the food manufacturers, in my opinion, the Resturants ALSO need to list their ingredients as: Contains nuts, milk, and etc. AFTER each dish segment or at least label it with a asterik symbol...such as * for nuts, ** for milk, and so forth.

This would eliminate alot of anxiety for everyone especially for those who are allergic.

Agree?

Voice? Oprah? She's only interested in listening to her own.

Wow, gvmom. I never thought about her that way. But you might be right (Angel Network aside).

It will almost have to be someone who has a pull with a powerful celebrity status. It worked for Katie Couric who used her status to promote her late husband's colon cancer awareness.
All it takes is one voice, agree?

I don't believe Oprah has any subject on her show that she can't find a way to show her knowledge about. I stopped watching when basically every 'expert' she had on was just there to warm a seat and nod their head. I don't know if she's just gotten too many honorary degrees from colleges where she's given speeches, or she thinks that reading a book makes her an expert, but it has just gotten to be too much for me. Oh, that and her name dropping every other minute. I know she is best friends with every famous person in the world, but do I really want to hear about it every other minute? And, I really hate that show where she gives a ton of stuff to the audience -- you know the favorite things or something like that. Why doesn't she give the stuff to people who really need it, like the homeless, women's shelters, etc. If you have enough money to buy a plane ticket, stay in a hotel and go to her show, you don't need the free pajamas. Give them to a place that gives shelter to women who are victims of domestic violence and had to leave their homes in the middle of the night with nothing so they wouldn't have the cr@p beat out of them, and have only the clothes on their backs. They are the ones that need the free stuff.
So, well, coming off my soapbox. My only suggestion if you like Oprah, and feel she is the way, send her a book, make sure you have a celebrity tie-in (A-list celebrity too --- no mediocre ones will do), and maybe suggest that Dr. Phil could come on and be an expert about the psychological impact on families that Food Allergies have. I wouldn't expect it to really do what you think it could do for awareness though.

I would like to remain optimistic...all is possible.
It is God that makes things all possible...not one person, like Oprah, or any other King or Queen can save everybody from everything. But God can do wonders in anyone, including the invisible.
