AllergyMoms: This video will make you mad!
By Gina Clowes on September 14, 2007
Many parents of food allergic children, particularly those allergic to milk, are outraged at comments from MSNBC’s Senior Legal Analyst Susan Filan who makes fun of food allergies and completely dismisses the severity of them.
Here are some of Susan Filans comments:
“I just don’t know how sick you can get from a piece of cheese!”
(Google Sabrina Shannon.)
“He says his medical bills were $700 so how bad was it?"
"Generally,allergy to cheese is lactose intolerance which gives you a stomach ache.” (wrong--two completely different conditions)
Not defending the lawsuit here and also dont think Ms Filan’s comments were made maliciously, however it would be nice if she’d check the food allergy facts first.
