Preventing the Development of Allergies

This article appeared one year ago. I was interviewed on our local Fox news station about it. I thought that I reviewed the paper for this site. That either didn’t happen, is coded as a secret, exists as a draft, or got lost. I do think that the messages in that article are valuable and […]

How the Allergrinch Stole Christmas

Allergy Myth Information

When I began this website, I had in mind that I would use it to share perspectives and ‘pet peeves’. I have been more with the former versus the later. Now for a change of pace. One of my big pet peeves is myth information. That term is significantly different from mis-information. The use of […]
