When Food Gives You Hives is Chapter 23 of Nutrition For Dummies. This chapter covers the food allergy triggers, diagnosis and difference from food intolerance. Nutrition For Dummies goes beyond vitamins, minerals, etc. to give us plain language information on all aspects of our nutritional needs.
This chapter covers food allergy in a fairly complete way, particularly with respect to what foods are likely to cause allergic reactions and what those reactions might be. While the author cites most causes of food allergies, it would have been good to see a few paragraphs covering medical conditions that cause allergic reactions to food, such as Yeast Infections. This way, people might have some recourse when the tests reveal they have multiple food allergies or their allergies are changing.
