Books and More Books
From the Gecko's Foot "Milk is a foodstuff but the protein it contains, casein can be processed to make a useful plastic. Before the advent of synthetic plastics, milk plastic was used to make small objects such as buttons.
Before reading The Gecko's Foot I posted on my Chemurgy and Allergens Blog about Casein Buttons.
I was delighted to see some allergy books for tweens and teens on Food Allergy (as well as asthma) at the library. Most libraries have kid allergy books but few have books for young people. They may be more interested in learning some of the science behind their allergy, and reading about the social issues, like collage and work with allergies, as well as dating and taking responsibility for their food allergy. I believe that young people should read and learn about their age appropriate allergy issues not just from parents. (as important as this is)
