TORONTO, April 8 /CNW/ - How far should schools go to protect the health
and safety of our children? This is the great debate that Allergic Living
magazine raises in its Spring '09 cover story: "Backlash Boards the Bus."
When medical sociologist Dr. Christakis heard that students evacuated a
bus at his children's school because of one solitary peanut, he was appalled
and wrote a column in the British Medical Journal that branded ALL school
anaphylaxis measures as a form of "epidemic hysteria."
The topic has become an international debate amongst media and bloggers.
Yet, to the parents of hundreds of thousands of Canadian children with
dangerous food allergies, the views being expressed are frightening, divisive
Allergic Living focuses on the heart of the matter: Why do people love to
hate food allergies?
Also in the Spring issue: The science behind oral allergy syndrome. About
10 per cent of Canadians have a condition that causes intense reactions to
fruits and vegetables.
