Food Allergies and Intolerances
Good, maybe very good, food can sometimes cause allergies and intolerances.
In predisposed people, for example, a strawberry is enough to cause swollen lips, stomach cramps, itching, or worse, runny nose, cough, diarrhea…
And this also, indeed especially, in young age.
Breastfeeding appears to provide some protection.
And fortunately, in most cases, food allergies pass off reaching three years of age. It is easier to be intolerant to certain foods.
If in the case of allergy the immune system perceives a substance as a foreign – allergen – and it actives antibodies, in the case of intolerance and indigestible substance involves only the metabolism, with milder symptoms.
While allergy sufferers should then delete the offending food from the diet, intolerant people can tolerate small amounts of it (other than intolerance to gluten and sulphites).
