Can a person have a generalized (urticaria, asthmatic) reaction from only 
the smell of fish ?? If tuna fish can be ingested and/or fish is being 
cooked but doesnt have a fishy odor and the person doesnt react is there 
actually a scientific basis for this explanation or is it psychological ?? 
Can you steer me towards any studies you may know of ?? thank you
