About Allergies

Allergies are reactions to foreign substances by the body. In most cases, it is not toxicity of the substance itself that causes the adverse symptoms, but rather the body's own immune response to the "invasion." Allergies may come from a broad range of substances, and reactions can range from mild (runny nose, itching) to severe (swelling, breathing problems). Allergy testing can be performed to determine precisely which substances are responsible for these effects.[12]
