The allergic diner recently uncovered numerous articles on the web about how food allergies cannot be treated with allergy shots. The body's immune system does not respond to the small amounts of stimulation and unfortunately often has a reaction (not deadly, just unpleasant).
Why then, do doctors persist in prescribing allergy shots for people with severe food allergies?
Is this still standard medical practice? And what can allergic patients do to protect themselves? I welcome your ideas/research/comments.
