Food Allergy Deaths: Less Common Than You Think

I have a new piece on food allergies up on the Huffington Post today. Check it out:

The number of deaths from food allergies, as collected from 2.5 million death certificates across the country, is miniscule. Only eleven people died from food allergies in 2005, the last year for which we have data available. More people died from lawnmower accidents.

More on the Food Allergies

Hi, food allergy folk!

You were kind enough to send lots of letters to me and to Harper's in response to my recent article about food allergies.

Some of your letters are published in the new March issue of the magazine, as is a letter from me. Enjoy.
