Food Allergy Triggers

As someone who has multiple food allergies and sensitivities myself, I was interested in this Web MD slide show of some common (and uncommon) food allergies.  It makes the point that an adult can be suddenly stricken with a shellfish allergy and it will remain with him for life...nothing to play around with as shellfish allergies can cause life-threatening anaphylaxis.  It also distinguishes between allergies, sensitivities and food intolerance.  I was only vaguely aware that a wheat allergy did not necessarily mean that someone would automatically have a gluten sensitivity.

 

It's good information presented in a quick, interesting format and a good "refresher" for all of us. How many of you have allergies yourselves or, even if not, have dealt with food allergies suffered by children and grandchildren?
