The worldwide epidemic of allergies and related diseases continue to explode, taking a particular toll on children. This eBook contains 89 original posts from Asthma Allergies Children, the web's liveliest source of information about allergies and asthma, which was launched in tandem with publication of "Asthma Allergies Children: a parent's guide" because "medicine moves faster than print." These short essays are written mostly by doctors, with a few mothers included for their insights into managing a family where one or more children are severely allergic, especially to food, or have severe asthma--something many doctors are not very good at explaining. Allergic Living magazine, the most authoritative popular publication on the subject, calls Asthma Allergies Children "an expert resource." All medical content is reviewed by Dr. Paul M. Ehrlich or Dr. Larry Chiaramonte, board-certified pediatric allergists, co-founders of the site, co-authors of "Asthma Allergies Children: a parent's guide", and regular contributors.
