The National Allergy & Anaphylaxis Council invites you to Take the Pledge. 15 million Americans have food allergy. That's 9 million adults, and 6 million children. Food allergies can cause a life-threatening reaction known as anaphylaxis. There is no cure. Let's band together to advocate, inspire and empower a Nation.
The power of one, if fearless and focused, is forbidable, but the power of many working together is better.
