Kiss Me, Kill Me?

Teenagers don’t like to stand out. But for young adults with potentially life-threatening food allergies, being forthright about their condition can be a matter of life and death.

At this year’s Food and Allergy Anaphylaxis Network conference, during Food Allergy Awareness Week, teens are learning how to talk about their allergies and take precautions at home, at school, even on dates. This following news that a Canadian girl with a peanut allergy died after being kissed by her boyfriend, who’d eaten peanut butter.

It’s not just romantic kisses that are being put on notice. Jaida, a two-year-old girl whose father kissed her after eating peanut butter, suffered anaphylaxis and had to be rushed to the hospital. Luckily, she survived.

For more information on children and teens living with food allergies, check out the Food Allergy News Web sites.

    Food Allergy Awareness Programs should be conducted very frequently at all schools, just to let others know what potential harm it can cause. Schools should always maintain a separate database for such kids and take special care.
