Food Allergy Safety Center
Food allergy is a serious medical condition. Each year, food allergies trigger an estimated 200,000 visits to emergency rooms. Sadly, they’re also responsible for 150-200 annual deaths.
Fifteen million Americans – including 1 in 13 schoolchildren – have food allergies. Studies show that food allergy numbers are increasing in the US and Europe. Doctors are still not sure why.
Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for food allergies. Avoiding unsafe foods is the mainstay of food allergy management. If you or a loved one suffers from food allergies, letting others know is an important way to avoid accidental food exposures and to stay safe.
We designed Selectivor to help. Create a profile for you or a loved one with food allergy. Then share it with others so they’re aware. Though this is still a far cry from a cure, our hope is that this will promote awareness and increase safety from accidental food exposures.
We organized essential info everyone should know about food allergies here in one convenient site. You’ll find informative videos and downloadable resources. Most material is easily shareable to help you keep others informed too. We also created food allergy info centers dedicated to helping educators and parents of children with food allergies keep everyone safe.
Finally, since food allergy is no light matter, please be sure to double check all foods for safe consumption. Do not rely solely on technology (including ours or any others) or the diligence of others to stay safe.
