Three lawyers from the United States have founded the Allergy Law Project, the Las Vegas Review Journal has reported.
The three ladies all have children with food allergies and are working to provide the right information about the law and food allergies.
The article is an interesting read about how one of these ladies, Homa Woodrum, found that her first child had developed food allergies. From there she started a blog which provided recipes for families dealing with food allergies.
The blog ran a story which caught the attention of an attorney from Maryland, Mary Vargas.
Woodrum met Laurel Francoeur, a lawyer from Massachusetts, who came up with the idea of the Allergy Law Project. Together the three ladies provide free information online about the allergy law in the United States.

A research team in Australia have discovered that there is a link between children who have an over-active immune system, and the development of certain food allergies.
They found that children who have an over-active immune system are more likely to develop food allergies in the first few years of life.
They aren't sure why certain children have hyperactive immune cells, though they have found that certain cells are activated before or during birth. Why it happens is unknown.
They are going to carry on the research to look for answers that may help to lower the risk of children developing these food allergies.
