Food Allergies: The Complete Guide to Understanding and Relieving Your Food Allergies

[July 2003] This book would make a great magazine article. Though it does contain some interesting information, the book seems to be written for somebody with the IQ of a donut. He starts by detailing all his education, and then continues to talk down to the reader. He also repeats himself without adding any detail. (Yes, we learn that he really likes corn on the cob!) The contents of the book could easily be boiled down to 10 pages without missing anything important. Also, don't expect to find much of anything concerning 'classic' food allergies here.
As a saving grace, there are a few nice charts and tables at the end to help pinpoint MSG content in fast foods and elsewhere.
