There has been some great information coming out of last week's Conference of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI). One of the speakers, Dr. David Stukus, presented on the outdated information related to allergies that still circulates. Among the myths:
- "I can't get the flu shot because I'm allergic to eggs."
- "I'm allergic to food dyes."
- "I can take an at-home blood test to find out which foods I'm allergic to."
- Avoid giving highly allergenic foods to babies for their first 12 months of life.
