Fatal Reactions to Food

No, not my mom. But Dr. Andy has a post on fatal and near fatal reactions to foods today. Just in time for some extended scary reading.

One of my students wrote last year on working in the restaurant industry. And he wrote of a woman who died in the restaurant from anaphylactic shock from food she was allergic to that she was assured was not in her meal.

It’s not funny. It just sounds silly. How could someone die from food? Oh, you mean choking on it? No. I mean allergic reactions that kill.
