I am no longer a fan of Dr. Phil. I think he got his own shown & had become a pompous @&^. I would be worried that he would take a food allergy show & turn it around to present the moms as suffering from anxiety & paranoia.
I recall watching an early episode with a mom & dad who had differences about raising their infant & how the dad was painting the mom to be neurotic. Perhaps she was; I can't make that judgement. But one of the complaints that the dad was that he thought a baby should be a able to sleep with a blanket and stuffed animals & no one on the show addressed the issue of that it is much safer to keep a crib free of stuffed animals, pillows & blankets. I felt that was glossed over because they wanted the mom to look as nuerotic as possible.
I would prefer to have this issue addressed by a show that's a little less opinionated & somewhat newsy like 20/20, Dateline NBC, or even the Today Show.

I know that another Mom has written to Oprah with no response from the show. I want to write to Oprah, Dr. Phil and Montel Williams to try and get one of them to hear us and air a show on Peanut/nut Allergy. Anyone here interested in helping to write to them? I will get the email address's for us.....
We can be heard!

I have been thinking of contacting the Food Network, and see if they could address food allergies on some of their shows.
Edit: I just looked up the Food Network's address (I couldn't find how to contact them by e-mail on their website). If you are interested it is: Food Network, 75 Ninth Avenue, New York, NY 10011.

This thursday dr phill has a show on extreme food obsessions, and has a child with a genetic condition prader-wills( SP?).
This is a nasty conditon which often is accompanied by learning difficulties as well as intense , constant hunger.
IMO this is not a standard food obsession, but a inherited disease, and if they are featuring conditions like this, why not severe food allergies?
Are food allergies so common that they are no longer news worthy, no matter how severe they are??

I'm new here, and I just posted this on another thread, but I wrote Martha Stewart and asked her to garnish dishes containing nuts with nuts on the top or side as a warning. I also asked her to talk about nut free foods on her show. She made stuffed sweet potatoes with a layer of pecans UNDER a marshmallow topping. My son is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts and he's bad about asking what's in dishes. He never would have guessed this one.

On yesterday's Today Show (NBC), Katie Couric mentioned her nephew has PA. Perhaps she might be receptive to stories on FA? Meg
