Two Interesting Allergy Websites and One other

I was made aware of this website the other day.  The website had a feature that I wanted to share.  It is the tab labeled Allergy Friendly Food Reports.  It was interesting to read about newly released foods.  They give a description of the product, what the food is free of, and possible cross contamination issues.

While I don't have a child that has an anaphylactic  reaction, I could only imagine how scary that would be to send them off to school or anywhere else for that matter.  I liked the following website. It had good information for beginners with allergies, but the section I that grabbed me was the section that allows members and non-members to sign up for email alerts, at no charge, to be notified of mislabeled or recalled products.

This link was to a special report by the Environmental Health News.  This was a tidbit I didn't know.  It talked about a high dose of lead in many Balsamic Vinegars.  This website gives a current list of non toxic Balsamic Vinegar.
