We're quite excited here at Allergic Living world HQ about the forthcoming Winter magazine. Thought I'd just paste in our media release so you can see some of what's in it.

(Fyi, if you want to subscribe and get this issue as part of the subscription, do so before the issue cutoff date of Nov. 18. Just go back to the homepage and hit the Subscribe tab.) /Gwen

Allergic Living Examines
Allergies on the Job

From the business lunch and the holiday office party to a musty cubicle space, work environments can present some tough challenges for allergic employees. Allergic Living magazine’s Winter issue examines the sometimes vexing topic of managing food and environmental allergies and asthma at work. It delves into issues such as how to ask the boss for accommodation, how not to look “weak” with allergies, and presents strategies for reducing allergens in the workplace.
As the busiest season for visiting family begins, Allergic Living also considers a frustrating issue for parents of children at risk of anaphylaxis: those well-meaning relatives who just don’t grasp the seriousness of food allergy. Experts offer useful advice about keeping the family peace while protecting your child.
As well, Allergic Living warms up to winter with its “Survival Guide,” offering 25 inventive ways to enjoy the season – inside and out – while reducing allergic risks.

Other features in the Winter issue:
* Coach Mike “Pinball” Clemons and family on managing seafood allergies.
* The rise in secondary reactions in anaphylaxis.
* A Guide to Winter Asthma – how to stop the wheeze.
* Popular columns – Ask the Allergists, Ask the Dermatologist and Hot Topics: Making Sense of Sabrina’s Law (the first schools law protecting students at risk of anaphylaxis).
* Great safe recipes and cookies.

Allergic Living’s Winter issue publishes in late December. It may be ordered online at http://www.allergicliving.com as part of a subscription until November 18. Or, in late December, readers may order the individual issue onsite by clicking the “Current/Past Issues” tab). Direct inquiries to info@allergicliving.com or call: 416-604-0110.

Biphasic reactions - a lot of allergic people apparently are at risk of having a secondary reaction after an initial anaphylactic reaction. Can be within a few hours or several hours after the first. Important to have epinephrine for that one, too.

I attended the allergists' conference in Winnipeg and will be reporting on some new statistics, information on this topic in the Winter issue.
