Salem boy to ask Congress to pass food allergies bill

It seems to me that it is not so much to ask and accurately be told what is in the foods that we eat. Whether that be at a restaurant or from a food that is packaged and sold at a store. Legislating the information that we receive can be a bit tricky, as are all things having to do with the FDA. But many people are working hard to increase food safety. This is an article about a 13 year old from New Hampshire who is one of 80 youngsters from across the country chosen by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network to speak to Congress on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 about a bill that would fund food allergy research and help schools manage students who have such allergies.
