We must eat to live, yet it is a sad fact that many of us, if not all have allergic reactions to various foods. There is no cure for food allergies, but a strict avoidance of food allergens specific to the individual, can prevent serious health consequences.

A food allergy is an adverse immune response to a food protein. Protein has being the rage for dieters for the last two decades, yet it is protein, especially animal protein that is causing so much ill health including allergies.

Top food allergen: milk (from cows, goats and sheep), eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, seafood, shellfish, soy and wheat and these eight account for 90% of food allergies in United States.

Why the adverse effect: they clog the system, eaten too often, foreign invaders, unrecognizable to the body (unnatural, various protein isolates), GMO (manmade mutants), irritants.

Reactions: allergic rhinitis (and various respiratory tract disorders), conjunctivitis, eczema (and various skin reactions), asthma, inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, celiac disease, lung disease,
