Our summer issue (163) is now out. Copies can be ordered through our shop online here.

In this issue we discuss the future of allergen labelling; how food allergy could be prevented; and about choosing wisely when it comes to allergy tests and treatments. Clinical psychologist Dr Mieke Garrett gives some advice on managing anxiety, and the Respiratory Foundation NZ’s Teresa Demetriou has suggestions for reducing environmental triggers. We also check out the 250K website for young people, there are tips on managing bee or wasp venom allergy, and on getting ready for school in 2018. In our regular features, the Malaghan Institute talks about the skin microbiome; Izzy exposes her cynical side in relation to ‘breakthrough’ research; Anna Schmidt finds an allergy-friendly café in Hot Water Beach, and Alana Scott provides more yummy allergen-free recipes.
