Did you know about allergy bullying?

I just read an article on CNN about allergy bullying. In spite of my summer research on school bullying for my book, this was new to me.
Allergy bullying is making fun of kids who need to avoid foods according to this article. I imagine allergy bullying could also be making fun of kids who need to use an inhaler.
Apparently some people even teachers won't take food allergies seriously. This is serious. Food allergies can be life threatening.
We need to spread the word on this. I am adding it to my nonprofit anti bullying program Bit by Bit Stop the Bullies that I am developing. Not available just yet. Check in November for launch at www.dorkoids.com which is still under construction. We are trying to hurry.
