Food allergies are very serious. It can be difficult to believe that the very food we need to nurture our bodies, can cause great harm to some, even death. If you know someone with a food allergies, whether it is a friend at school or a co-worker, please take it very seriously. Refrain from joking about food allergies or making fun of the person with food allergies. Never trick anyone into eating a food they are allergic to either. This is very dangerous for the food allergic individual. The best thing to do is help the person with the food allergy, even if you don't understand why they have to avoid a food. You can help save a life by helping your allergic friend avoid exposure. Even the smallest gesture of support could be the biggest help.
