If It Sounds Too Good to be True...

I just came across this alarming press release advertising an over-the-counter homeopathic treatment for food allergies: New OTC Treatment Available to Food Allergy Sufferers. It's so distasteful and dangerous to prey on people like this, especially on the heels of promising news from the Arkansas and Duke peanut desensitization studies. As they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Please be sure to check with your allergist about any treatment you may be considering!

This certainly is a scary announcement. I too would not suggest anyone take any sort of allergy medication, especially one targeted at food allergies, without consulting your doctor!

I can't believe the FDA allows such a product to be sold, or at least marketed in this manner.
