Many families are concerned about food alergies these days. Of course, there have long been issues with pesticides and other contaminants, but those are long-term issues whereas alergic reactions are immediate and potentially lethal. In "The Nature of Food Alergy", author Paul Hannaway gives parents a detailed guide to detecting food alergies in children, and determining the particular foods that the child is reacting to. You'll not only get information on particular foods that are known to cause allergic reactions, but the ingredients within many food products that can be hidden triggers. The book has a modest level of scientific and medical jargon, but nothing that should be beyond the level of any parent. Indeed, its refreshing to find a general audience book that doesn't talk down to it's readers. There's nothing like having good information to help reduce the stress of being a parent, so books like this one are a great investment.
