Food allergy is an abnormal response by your immune system when you eat certain foods. Food allegies can be so severe that in many schools, a peanut-free table is provided for children with a severe peanut allergy--an allery that can be deadly.  Can children outgrow a dangerous food allergy as they get older, and can people acquire food allergiese in adulthood?  Learn what's happening in your body when you are reacting to a food, the difference between food allergy and food intolerance, why it seems like food allergies are on the rise, and what you can do to protect you or your child if you have a food allergy. Dr. Mustafa will be available to take your questions.
