pFox news in DFW just had a segment on peanut allergy. They interviewed a military guy who has had anaphylactic reactions and who is participating in the anti-IGE study. They started the piece by saying "even airborne particles can cause a reaction". They also interviewed a pediatric allergist who said the studies are hopeful. /p
pI am pleased to see such a well done (albeit short) piece getting our info out. Another local station aired the breastfeeding/PA link story but really said nothing about the allergy itself. I am so grateful to the media for helping increase awareness./p
pIf I find the story on the web, I'll try to post it here. As of right now, it's not there yet./p

And I missed it, darn it!! *pout* I was watching NBC since tonight was my 'ER' night. (Love that Ross!!) Thanks for letting us know, though. I'll keep my eyes peeled for any sign of the story on their website now. [img][/img]

For some reason I thought risk of anaphylaxis meant you were not allowed to join the services!
