Food Allergies/Mold allergy


Hi....I have a mold allergy and candida.I am not allergic to nuts but I know that they can be moldy ...should I avoid them?also ...when a product says that it is processed in a facility that produces tree nuts  ...are the facilities checking for mold?

Nobody should eat mouldy anything apart fpm those inherent in time proven foods like strong cheese. It can contain all sorts of toxins. Why avoid nuts?

I rather doubt that many manufacturers of nut products take any more checks for mold than does any other food producer.

Any in the field I believe. Only experience of questions that get asked will tell.


I am a retired medical academic from the UK. I have done major research on Food Allergy and have been a government adviser in the area. 30 years experience running an allergy clinic. And undergraduate and post-graduate teaching.

Well, apart from the FRCP, I'm no longer active in the area. I'm too busy writing books. And I no longer have the cash to go to international meetings. But was active in many.

Will 120 scientific papers help? Chapters in books. Patient advisory materials. Magazine articles. TV appearances. Live and recorded. National and international invited lectures, etc. It was my job for 40 years. Do you think I count!

MD, PhD, Postgraduate Diplomas etc. Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians. etc. But I don't want that put out on the net! Just to let you know!

Too many to count, patients of course and a large number of all sorts of corporate consultancies and considerable work as an expert witness in the Courts. I'm volunteering because your Greek expert has been so helpful, I thought I'd offer something back.
