F "Well then, I'd like to start a discussion on allergy."

All (applause)

F "This theme is" consideration when a person who has allergies came to visit home "

I "It is a debate about a rather limited situation ..."

T "In short, it is consideration when you are in the same space as a person who has allergies."

F "There are various kinds of allergies. There are many kinds of conditions of onset such as eating, allergens in the air. So, we set specific conditions this time."

M "Indeed, for example, symptoms of allergic reactions in animals will appear even if you only stay at home."

I "On the other hand, about food allergies, we can solve if even foods provided here are careful."

N "Before going out to play, I think we need to check yourself and other's allergy."

T "Yes, I think it is very necessary for both myself and others to confirm what is allergen."

N "I do not know what kind of consideration I should do without knowing the allergen substance."

I "Who on the side to welcome a friend need to know about partner's allergy symptoms."

F "Is it the severity of symptoms?"

I "There is also it, but it is necessary to know the contact information and how to take first aid when something happens."

F "Oh I see, we should definitely know."

M "The epipen we examined this time was one of the first aid that other people could do."

To the page of "Anaphylactic shock"
To the page of "Health Office Report"

T ”Anaphylaxis shock has the danger of losing consciousness. I need to ask in advance."

M "It is important to exchange information in advance, anyway."

N "But you can not deal with animal allergies, right?"

F "Also hair or saliva are dangerous."

T "No, nothing like that."

F " T is really crazy about cat. By the way, we can't do anything with allergens in the air?"

T "My relative is allergic to animals, so when he comes to my house I move the cats to another room, and even this alone will quench his symptoms considerably."

N "To summarize, we try not to give allergic food and isolate animals. These are good."

T "Cats may be poor, but it is inevitable."

F “Now, to summarize what we've talked about so far.”

① Always know about each other's allergy beforehand
② Always avoid contact between the allergen and the patient

T "Oh, now I remembered one."

F "What is it?"

The discussion was expected to be over, but T seems to have remembered something. The discussion seems to be continued...

2nd theme “If person who has allergies wants to touch allergens”

T "Should the owner stop when a patient is trying to contact an allergen animal at his own will?"

I "Why suddenly do it?"

T "The relative likes cats, and he got permission from his parents and entered the room where the cat was located."

F "What happened to him?"

T “No problem.”

M "That's good."

T “Just swollen eyes and runny nose were serious.”

F “Oh…”

T "What was the right thing to do?"

F “I think you should have stopped.”

N “But he said he would like to do so, didn’t he?”

M “As we said earlier, if something happened, could they handle it?”

I "He said that he got permission from his parents."

T "In fact, his parents were nearby."

M "Even if something happened, they could solve it."

F "Well, this is a difficult problem."

N "Was he pleased?"

T "He seemed happy although he had symptoms."

I "In this case it's better to let the patient do like he want."

F "However, it is limited to cases where there are parents and symptoms not serious."


T “So, in conclusion.”

In certain circumstances, we may respect the will of people who have allergies

F “It is right.”

T “That is limited only when the symptoms were not serious, so we must not do it with ordinary allergy.”

M “Most allergies has seriously symptomatic.”

T ”My friend had allergies to spices, but he wanted to eat curry and he had. Then he fell down.”

F "That's a terrible story."

M "Anyway, we should act cautiously."

N "It's about health."

F "When you come in contact with allergies, be careful with various factors!"

At a later date...

T “By the way, we talked about visitors, but I think that the premise of that “visitor” is too limited.”

F “Then, would we discuss again after deciding the definition of “visitor”? ”

N “For example?”

T ”Trying to look to international diversity, we will set a foreigner.”

M “In that case, it seems that point of view will expand if you set it to ”Tourism to the country” rather than “Visitors to the house”. ”

F “Alright then, the theme of discussion today was decided as “About allergy consideration for foreign tourists”. ”

3rd theme “About allergy consideration for foreign tourists”

F “It seems each has finished examining, then let’s begin discussion ”

T “It might easy to talk about restaurants that would be deeply involved allergies.”

N “Because food allergens often cause serious symptoms.”

M “About that, Mr.I and I searched.”

I “First, about “Food ingredients pictogram seal”. By affixing these seals, it is possible visually to tell foreigners about allergens without language.”

M “Because it tells the existence of ingredient not limited to allergens, it also leads to solving problems of religiously problematic ingredients, including pork.”

F “Oh, I got it. Foreign visitors can avoid allergens by themselves without asking clerks.”

M “There is also “Store front seal for restaurants” related to the Food ingredients pictogram seal.”

I “It is to paste at the shop front to tell whether there is a display of the ingredients used and foreign language version menu is present.”

M “This is the picture of the seal.

T “Well I’ll be damned! It is the design everyone can see at a glance as I heard.”

N “Foreign visitors can enter safely if this seal is affixed to the shop front.”

I “Moreover, there are an interesting story that consideration of soba allergy to foreigners.”

F “Consideration of soba allergy?”

I “There are foreign visitors who eat soba without knowing that soba is allergen.”

M “There is a very interesting thing called “An allergy tattoo checker”....... It is difficult to explain, so it is faster to show the page directly;

F “I was so surprised at the union of tattoo and allergy check.”

N “Now, foreigners can get checked positively.”

T “The idea’s great victory!”

I “Also, there is the story that there is a translation of the main language of the word "Are there any foods that you cannot eat due to allergies?" in the foreign correspondence manual of the restaurant is also interesting.
