Allergic Living first published Ottawa allergist's Dr. Antony Ham Pong's updated Peanut/Nut Allergy Handout in the Summer 2008 issue.

Since then, we've had many requests to view it again. So by popular demand, here is this wonderful, unique resource: http://www.allergicliving.com/documents/hampong.asp

Pls. share the link (and Dr. Ham Pong's hard work!) with friends and support groups. Hope you find it as helpful as we did.

Thank you very much! This has the best listing of tree nuts that I have ever seen and by far the best Q&A.

Your work is very much appreciated!

I guess I am one of the rare ones.

I react when I walk by a nut counter in the mall. Thankfully it is not horribly serious but I know I should not drive until I have had sufficient time to recover. Prolonged visits to that area would not be wise.
I have come close to passing out with candles burning in a closed room because the candles were made with nut oils.

I wear gloves to work out in a public gym because often there are nut oil remnants on handles. It may not be serious but it can be pretty uncomfortable for days after.
