What do people who suffer from environmental or food allergies need to know?

Cigarette smoke is ubiquitous. If you have severe food allergies, you probably should not eat at restaurants; between language difficulties and simply not understanding the nature of allergies (and that wheat and flour are the same thing, etc.), you may be served food you are allergic to even if you have been assured that the problematic ingredient is not included. - Jan 15, 2017
For food allergies, know how in Greek to say exactly what you are allergic to and know how to spell it. This will be very helpful. - Dec 20, 2016
