No Laughing about Food Allergies
I like that Dr. Robert Wood. A favorite speaker at FAAN's (Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network) annual conferences, Dr. Wood is professor of pediatrics and director of pediatric allergy and immunology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a member of the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network's medical advisory board. Plus he's a nice man who can calmly and effectively talk about food allergies. In a recent opinion piece published in the LA Times, Dr. Wood invites Joel Stein to spend a day in his clinic. Stein, a NY Times columnist, recently angered many when he published an article calling nut allergies a "yuppie invention". Read both articles and the many comments here.
