The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food has produced information packs for the catering industries on how to anticipate the problems that might arise from allergic individuals in their restaurants. The Anaphylaxis Campaign, the British Allergy Foundation and their American counterpart, the Food Allergy Network, are excellent sources of rationally prepared and non-hysterical advice for individuals affected by food allergy and intolerance. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has a website that has free patient information available, links to other sites and access to American physicians who may treat individuals. The Anaphylaxis Campaign has recently gone online. The British Allergy Foundation website is rather rudimentary at present.
