ALLERGIES CAN BE DEADLY -  Medical experts estimate that 1 in 3 people can experience allergies in some form at anytime during their lifetime.  And for many people an allergic reaction can be deadly if they don't have quick access to life-saving medicine such as Epinephrine.  Recently the manufacturer of an auto-injector device known as the "Epi-Pen" has raised the prices of a single prescription two-pack more than 400%  and can cost $600 or more.
