What is food to most can prove to be poison to others.
Protein allergens in daily foods may trigger life threatening allergic reactions sending the person in to an anaphylactic shock. Food allergies are more common in children. Common foods causing allergic reactions in children include hen’s egg, peanuts, tree nuts, cow’s milk, wheat, sesame, cod fish and soya, while in adults nuts, shellfish and fruits are often a problem.
