When we talk about a serious health condition, we most often think about cancer, Alzheimer’s, heart disease, diabetes and more. However, there is a health condition that is affecting over 15 million Americans and send someone to the emergency room every 3 minutes – food allergy. Many medical professionals believe that there is no cure for food allergy, and people living with food allergy must be careful because one wrong food can trigger an allergic reaction that leads to anaphylaxis, possibly constricting the breathing and blood circulation of the person.
While the most common food allergies are caused by peanuts, fish, and shellfish, there are many other food that may cause allergic reactions as well. For example, rare food allergies include corn allergy, meat allergy, seed allergy, spice allergy and others.
Since food allergy is potentially life-threatening, it is important for us to raise awareness about food allergy and educate others about this serious condition during this Food Allergy Awareness Week and beyond to ensure people with food allergy can manage their condition.
