General description and overview of allergies, food allergies

Allergies are a result of an abnormal reaction of the body’s immune system when it comes into contact with a particular substance called allergen. Allergens are minute particles of matter, found in the environment or in food, which the body regards as alien and potentially harmful. An allergen does not provoke the same reaction among non-allergic people. Equally, the same allergen may cause entirely different reactions in different people.

Allergens cause over production of histamine which culminates into most of the symptoms of the allergic reaction.

Allergies can strike at any age, but the susceptibility and response of human body to certain allergens changes, particularly in the case of diet related allergies.
