This is a revised and updated version of the definitive peanut allergy book. Since the publication of "The Peanut Allergy Answer Book" in May 2001, there has been much additional research published in the field of peanut allergy and anaphylaxis in medical literature. This research includes new diagnostic tests, new vaccines and therapies, and new information on the history of peanut allergy. In addition, there has also been a great increase in public awareness of the societal impact of peanut allergy, such as in schools and other child-care facilities, in restaurants, and in the food and restaurant industry. The incidence of peanut allergy has doubled in the past five years and continues to increase so the impact of this medical problem, particularly in young children, is enormous. "The Peanut Allergy Answer Book, 2nd Edition", contains 35 per cent of new material, including a new foreword and introduction, as well as new chapters.
