FOOD ALLERGY QUIZ!! (This quiz could save your life)

A food allergy occurs when the body’s immune system is alerted due to a certain food which is harmful and reacts by causing symptoms. This is called an allergic reaction. Foods that cause allergic reactions are called allergens.

Many people who have allergies to pollens, such as ragweed and grasses, could also be allergic to some foods. Proteins in the pollens compare to the proteins in some fruits and vegetables, therefore, if your child is allergic to ragweed, he or she may experience an allergic reaction to melons and bananas.  This is due to the protein in ragweed appearing like the proteins in melons and bananas.
