In the 15 years since the first edition of "Food Allergy and Intolerance" was published, the subject has become the focus of intense public interest. Not only are more people aware of the phenomena involved, but new evidence and practices are constantly being introduced, and there has been an unprecedented growth of the field. The second edition encompasses the rigor and depth of the first, whilst incorporating all the changes required to produce the definitive guide to the subject for all those involved. The symptoms of a food allergy or intolerance impact not only all allergists, immunologists, nutritionists, gastroenterologists and pathologists, but doctors of respiratory medicine, dermatologists, general practitioners, pharmcologists and all those in environmental medicine.
