2 children in every school classroom – have life threatening allergies

In 2010, a group of researchers at Northwestern University of Medicine  surveyed a demographically representative sample of 40,000 U.S. families. In a peer-reviewed study  they found that “two children in every school classroom, or almost 6 million American kids, have a food allergy that could potentially endanger their lives.”

See http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/s1884/text for a proposed bill in the Senate that could save lives of children who are accidentally exposed to fatal allergens at school.
