Are all types of proteins good for you?

The answer is clearly NO…Food Allergy is possibly the most common medical condition that is spread worldwide. Allergies can be mild or severe and at times even fatal. Whenever a food allergy occurs, our immune system behaves in a certain manner and negates a kind of protein present in the food because it identifies that protein as a harmful ingredient. Food allergies are not to be confused with food toxicity, intolerance etc. Food allergies are not necessarily common for any random pair of people. Everybody has their own sensitivities and immunity towards food items. In case of an allergic reaction, the particular protein will be marked by Immunoglobulin E, in other words the immune system will then be triggered to get rid of the protein. The process of fighting an alien (allergy causing food) existence that is marked by immunoglobulin E is plain and simple; WBCs are stimulated to get into action and attack the intruder.

So these challenging proteins will at all times cause allergic responses. Thus, stay away from the allergenic foods is the best way out, while there are medications available can treat, ease, or stop allergic reactions. It is critical to identify the symptoms of food allergies to safeguard yourself from the suffering. Its best to know what is good for you and what isn’t. The allergy symptoms could vary from slight headaches, sneezing, skin rashes, nausea, vomiting, wheezing, difficult breathing to even asthmatic attack, breathlessness and heart failure.
