  1. Please note, the World Health Organization identified oral intake of dust mite allergens as a cause of severe food allergy, reference, 'WHO Journal', 2009, Vol.2 issue 5, pp 91-95.

    To see WHY dust mites can be so dangerous, please look at the short animation on my site It's used in allergy clinics as a teaching aid and admired by doctors and the Chief Executive of Asthma UK who wrote,"your animation is a fun and creative way to explain mites". Have a look, if you find it helpful please pass it along.
