Irreverent and bitter, with maybe a little light swearing, Holly Bayardo says what we’re all thinking.  Her journey into the complex and confusing world of allergies offers insight for all of us, whether we are a little sneezy, or could die from ingesting a single sesame seed.  Without being afraid to say things like, “…big pharma is working against us,” Holly’s raw, unfiltered, viewpoint is refreshing and much needed.  As the mom of a daughter with complex & terrifying food allergies, Holly is deep in the trenches of what seems to have become an outbreak of illness for this generation of children.  In her experience, just the word - ALLERGY - has become a lightning rod for controversy and confusion. 

Why this curious spike?  With her “laugh so I don’t cry…”  approach, sprinkled with a fantastic line up of guests, Holly hopes her experience on the front lines with this epidemic will help answer that question and more.

Food allergies or not...

Killer food allergies provides excellent information. Episodes have helped me understand the anxiety behind both food allergy parents as well as the individuals that deal with allergies daily. It has also opened my eyes to food sensitivities and how everything relates and can eventually cause bigger issues. Holly has a fun light hearted way of bringing humor into every episode about this terrifying subject. An excellent resource for sure!!

A “must listen” for understanding food allergies

I’ve been a “food allergy mom” for over 10 years and I still learn something new each time I listen to this podcast. Plus, it’s so interesting to hear the personal stories of other people in the food allergy community, and encouraging to learn how they are working to make a difference. The podcast is also very well done and concisely edited (which is not the case with many podcasts out there). Keep up the great work you are doing!
