ALLERGY TIP OF THE MONTH

Adverse reactions to peanuts and tree nuts can be quite severe and in many cases life threatening and therefore should strictly be avoided.  Approximately 30% of patients with peanut allergy are also allergic to tree nuts (almonds, cashews and pecans, etc.) and about 5 % are allergic to other legumes like soybean, green pea and string bean.
