Contents Better allergy testing -- The mechanics of dinosaurs-- Sheree Marris
Summary "Remarkably, nearly one in five Australians now has some sort of food allergy, and the impact on family and school life can be horrendous. Milk, eggs, fish, nuts, or any of a host of other foods can set off a reaction. But can children outgrow allergies? And is diagnosis as good as it could be? -- Paul Willis visits Bristol in the UK to look at the work of engineering genius, Isambard Kingdom Brunel - and not just because he can! He finds out that a technique straight out of an engineer's tool kit is being used to help researchers better understand the eating habits of dinosaurs. -- A self-confessed water baby who loves the marine world, Sheree Marris is an impassioned environmental communicator. Her two great passions - the water and inspiring people - led her to create an underwater snorkelling trail, The Octopuses Garden. She's even written a book about the bizarre sex lives of marine creatures..and all because of a chance meeting with a sea slug! "-- edited from website
