Food Allergies in the Times

Yesterday, the NY Times ran a story about AllergiKids called "Food Allergies Stir a Mother to Action." It's been on the Times' most-emailed list for the past two days. An excerpt:

"Working largely from a laptop on her dining room table, [Robyn O'Brien] has looked deep into the perplexing world of childhood food allergies and seen a conspiracy that threatens the health of America’s children. And, she profoundly believes, it is up to her and parents everywhere to stop it."

Incidentally: the Leonard Lopate segment on food allergies has been among the top most-emailed stories for the past week, and has just been edged out by Michael Pollan's new interview about In Defense of Food. Which I am very excited to read. I'm in the middle of The Omnivore's Dilemma for the second time right now-- the reporting is just fantastic.
