Allergy Season Ahead: We Need to Know About Food Allergies

Allergy or extreme sensitivity is a big problem of increasing health in today's life, sometimes allergies also become a cause of serious trouble. According to the International Allergy Organization (WAO), the international organization of the Society for Allergy and Immunity, 5-8 percent of infants worldwide suffer from food allergies. At the same time, in adults, it is only 1-2 percent. The truth is that there is no comprehensive data about food allergies in many countries, including India.

Based on these insufficient figures, the WAO believes that 22-52 million people worldwide are suffering from some food allergy, which is 3–7 percent of the total population of the world. During the last 10-15 years, newborns and school-going children have become victims of this because their immunity remains weak while they are being given new types of food.

A study published online in the World Allergy Organization Journal in December 2013 shows that 7 percent of elementary school-going children in developing countries of Asia, such as China suffers from food allergies. In developed countries, it is 10 percent. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 1997 and 2011, food allergies in children increased by 50 percent. From the late 1990s to the mid-2000s, the number of children hospitalized due to food allergies had tripled. Food-related allergies are usually cured in childhood.

According to the Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE) of America, the world's largest nonprofit organization that promotes food allergy awareness, knowledge, research, and advocacy, its recovery has slowed over the course of a few decades. This trend will increase the risk of children becoming ill because children with food allergies are three to four times more at risk of having asthma and cough allergies, and are at a much higher risk of severe anaphylaxis.

It is the alarm bell. There is no drug and treatment to prevent food allergies so far. There is only one way to avoid this, and that is to identify the things that cause allergies and make a list of everything to eat to ensure that whatever the person is eating is entirely safe. Some people become confused and muddled about food allergies and other food-related disorders such as an inability to digest food, food spoilage, and stomach disease. Some people do not consider it a disease and bypassing it as a problem of western countries.

The 1999 guidelines of the Codex Elementary Commission, a body created by the Food and Agriculture Organization to protect the health of consumers and ensure fair dealing in international food trade, have made it mandatory for all member states to have food allergies in their canned food Provide information about In India, this information is published in the food items given to the newborn instead of milk.

Food Allergy

This is due to our immune system, whose job is to protect us from any unknown food items like bacteria, viruses, poisonous substances, etc. The resistance system of some people is unable to distinguish between dangerous and normal substances. For example, one's immune system perceives the proteins in the egg as harmful or allergic. In response, it produces an antibiotic called immunoglobulin E (IgE) that binds to the skin, lungs, and cells of the gastrointestinal tract. If you come in contact with the allergen again, these cells emit other chemicals, including histamine. This disturbance in the immune system makes it sick. As these symptoms are caused by an allergic person's particular reaction to food, it may involve an organ or more than one organ, and its symptoms can range from itching to anaphylaxis. Certain factors of allergy can affect the nervous system and cause behavioural changes such as nervousness, excitement, insomnia, reduced appetite, and poor reading.

In this, the immune system reacts only to such protein gluten through a different type of antibody immunoglobulin A (IAA), which is found in grains. If left untreated, it can cause serious health problems such as multiple cellulosic, osteoporosis, epilepsy, short stature, and stomach cancer. The only cure is to take gluten-free supplements throughout life.

Non-Digestion Problem

It is a delayed reaction that occurs when a person is unable to digest food. This may be due to enzyme deficiency, non-digestion of chemicals added to food, or a response to naturally occurring compounds in food. Usually, people can eat small amounts of food without any trouble. Since it involves only the gastrointestinal tract, its symptoms may include abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhoea, but there is no risk of anaphylaxis.
