AGS In-Depth

In This Section:

People think I’m crazy when I tell them I can’t breathe when I smell the fumes from meat cooking. Some days all I want to do is cry.
—Samantha Gross

My AGS symptoms are generally 1-2 hours after (unintentionally) consuming dairy, 4.5 hours after (unintentionally) consuming mammal. With airborne I have about 15 minutes MAX from exposure to unconsciousness. So like the others, I will bolt to safety.
—Dori Svardal

Fumes are the worst. I have to sell my restaurant and end my 25 year career at 35 years old because of a stupid tick bite.
—Annie Mae King
