Tonight at 8pm ET on Cooking Channel, the one-hour special Edible Enemies will look at the mysterious increase in both the number and the severity of food allergies in the United States. Twelve million Americans are allergic to one or more ingredients like milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts (like almonds, cashews and wallnuts), fish, shellfish, soy or wheat. It makes every meal a terrifying gamble. There is no cure, and there is no treatment other than a shot of epinephrine in an emergency. We will hear from the parents of small children, and from teenagers and adults living with life-threatening food allergies. Find out what it’s like knowing that your next bite of food could be your last.
