SURVEY OF CAUSES AND EFFECTS
EVERY YEAR MANY OF US HAVE PHYSICAL REACTIONS THAT WE CALL ALLERGIES. THIS SURVEY IS INTENDED TO PROVIDE A METHODICAL WAY TO INVENTORY YOUR BODY═S REACTIONS TO SUBSTANCES IN YOUR WORLD. YOU CAN FILL IT OUT AS A PERSONAL QUESTIONNAIRE OR YOU MAY USE IT AS A SURVEY TO COLLECT DATA FOR A LARGER PROJECT.
