FAQTableThe most comprehensive site for resources on food allergy and food intolerance on the world wide web

All Allergy

From the CEO and Editor of AllAllergy, Dr. Harris Steinman MD:

Purpose of this Site:

The World Wide Web has simplified access to a great wealth of allergy and intolerance information for health professionals and consumers. However this information is not necessarily easily accessible. Search Engines do not grade Web sites or articles according to their content or worth. Important articles or resources may not show up at all on a Search Engine. Furthermore, excellent resources may be “hidden” in sites due to poor navigational design. Some noteworthy sites have little or poor information on certain topics, which may however, be well covered in more obscure sites.

This Web site has been launched to respond to the need for rapid access to all allergy and intolerance resources on the World Wide Web. We do not endorse any products or companies found on these pages. Companies do not pay to be listed or to have their products featured. Our coverage is inclusive.
