Food Alergies

Were you looking for information on Food Allergy? Food alergies is a common misspelling of food allergies.
 
A food allergy is an abnormal response by the body's immune system to a particular food. Symptoms include itching in the mouth, vomiting, hives, and asthma. In some cases, the reaction can be so severe that it causes serious illness or even death. Sometimes people suspect a food allergy, when they are actually experiencing another type of reaction called "food intolerance." Food allergy treatment usually involves avoiding the food that causes the reaction.
