In groundbreaking allergy news, the Allergy Amulet, something that could completely change the way people with allergies eat, is currently being tested, with plans for it to hit the market next year.
The Allergy Amulet sounds like a brilliant device. You can wear it like a necklace–hence the “amulet” in the title. I pick up on cues like that. The amulet’s creators claim it detects whether or not a food has your allergens in it. It uses a disposable strip that the amulet can read and analyze. It sounds like a really great invention. I would still check with the restaurant and review with the chef so that they were aware of my allergies, but it would be wonderful to have an extra layer of protection.
It was developed by a team of doctors, scientists, and members of the allergy community, including Abi Barnes who lives with food allergies, Dr. Joseph Belbruno, who is allergic to tree nuts, and Meg Nohe, who has a daughter with peanut and tree nut allergies.
This certainly is a promising invention. If you would like to read more about the allergy amulet they have a great website. http://www.allergyamulet.com/
