“Did a Takeaway Pizza Slice Kill Our Son?” Parents Call For Clearer Allergen Information | GMB

Good Morning Britain published this video item, entitled “”Did a Takeaway Pizza Slice Kill Our Son?” Parents Call For Clearer Allergen Information | GMB” – below is their description.

In their first television interview, the parents of a Leeds university student who died after eating a takeaway pizza have demanded to learn the “full truth” about their son’s death after an inquest was opened earlier this week. James Atkinson, 23, had a known peanut allergy and may have suffered anaphylaxis having eaten only one slice of a pizza he ordered from Deliveroo. His parents say that James was always “so careful” with his allergy. James, who died on July 10, 2020, had ordered food from the same premises before. However, he was not aware that the restaurant had begun using peanut powder as one of the ingredients when making a chicken tikka masala pizza. His parents, Jill Atkinson and Stuart are hoping the inquest will finally reveal some answers about their son’s death.

In This Story: Allergy

Allergies are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. These include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. Symptoms may include red eyes, an itchy rash, sneezing, a runny nose, shortness of breath, or swelling.

Common allergens include pollen and certain foods. Metals and other substances may also cause problems. Food, insect stings, and medications are common causes of severe reactions. Their development is due to both genetic and environmental factors.

Treatments for allergies include the avoidance of known allergens and the use of medications such as steroids and antihistamines. In severe reactions injectable adrenaline (epinephrine) is recommended.

Allergies are common. In the developed world, about 20% of people are affected by allergic rhinitis, about 6% of people have at least one food allergy, and about 20% have atopic dermatitis at some point in time. Depending on the country about 1–18% of people have asthma. Anaphylaxis occurs in between 0.05–2% of people.
