Soy allergy resources? [May. 8th, 2013|11:30 pm]
Against the grain


Hi all, I'm looking for good forums/groups/blogs/resources for a very sensitive soy allergy. We're talking can't cope with "shared facilities" warnings and seemingly reacting to things that are contaminated but not labeled as such, meaning the traces are below the legal limit for labeling requirements.

As an example of the kind of thing I'm hoping for, for corn allergy there are several forums and groups where a ton of good information can be gotten:

Delphi Avoiding Corn Forums: http://forums.delphiforums.com/avoidingcorn
^^ frequented by very sensititive corn allergics who have been doing the corn free thing for a long time.

^^ 900 people and counting, so lots of noise, but also a lot of responses to questions

And then here a number of blogs by those who are crazy sensitive to corn with all kinds of good info on the "basics" of surviving corn free.

It's my friend who's allergic. I am somewhat soy sensitive but it doesn't seem to be that bad compared to corn for me. The Facebook Soy Allergy board doesn't seem to have a lot of people on it. I'm hoping there is somewhere on the net, somewhere, where soy allergics are all talking to each other, but Google isn't bringing it up. Anyone have any leads?

yeah, they were building a new addition where I worked and I had hives for 3 straight months. No clue why until I went on a tour of the new addition and they started waxing poetical about how they were using environmentally friendly spray insulation made from soybeans.

Yeah I sort of wince every time someone says "green," "earth-friendly", or "biodegradable." For me it means corn, but sounds like it also means soy! Arrrgh, awful! Sometimes I just want to dig out a bunker and never ever leave. Or lock myself in a glass bubble and learn to photosynthesize...
