Food allergies have increased about 50% in the last 20 years. This week on To Your Health, host Portland Helmich interviews food allergy sufferer, Maya Mindlin, and her mother, Jill Mindlin, to talk about what it is like to have food allergies and the precautions they need to take on a day-to-day basis. Then, CEO and chief medical officer of Food Allergy Research and Education, Dr. James Baker, Jr., MD, joins Portland to discuss what may be causing the dramatic uptick in food allergy cases, what to do if you suffer from an anaphylactic reaction, and a potential cure on the horizon.
