Food allergy survey
A food allergy is a potentially deadly response by a person's immune system to a food or food component. After a susceptible person ingests a problem food, the immune system reacts with the release of histamines and other chemicals that trigger symptoms that can range from mild to life-threatening.
Those individuals who have severe allergic reactions to a particular food need to be especially cautious because a food allergy can trigger potentially life-threatening anaphylactic shock. This condition is characterized by difficulty in breathing and a dangerous drop in blood pressure.
