Allergy is a reaction of immune systems

Allergy is a reaction of immune systems to allergens and it happens owing to the www.panthersshopnflofficial.com/Kelvin_Benjamin_Jersey_Panthers excessive activation of white blood cells by certain types of antibodies. This reaction results in an inflammatory response called mild or severe allergies. That is why people bothered by a running nose, watery eyes, headaches, fatigue, itchy throat, and similar symptoms can be a victim of allergic reactions. According to data from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 1 out of 5 Americans suffer from all types of allergies such as indoor/outdoor, food and drug, latex, insect, skin and eye allergies. When it comes to knowing what causes allergies, we find food allergies, contact allergies and inhalant allergies as three common types of allergies caused by environmental allergens. Additionally, bacteria and parasites can also cause seasonal or common allergies to people. Mentioned below are some of the host and environment risk factors for inducing allergy. These include:


Food: About 90% of allergic responses to foods are originated by milk, soy, wheat, egg and fish. Sensitivity to arthropods is the most common type of food allergy in the US population. Interestingly, the most severe peanut allergy is not the most common food allergy among American adults and children.


Non food proteins: In the segment of allergy caused by non food proteins, latex can trigger IE mediated reactions. The most prevalent response to latex is a delayed hypersensitive reaction called 'allergic contact dermatitis' which usually lasts 48 to 96 hours and force people to take medical guidance.


Toxins: There are certain proteins that react with chemicals and change the shape of proteins. This change puts a negative effect on the skin and affects it with redness, swelling, streaking, pa pules, vesicles and blisters. It is quite clear that about Kony Ealy Authentic Jersey 25 percent of the US population shows an allergic response to toxins interacting with proteins.


Genetics: Allergic diseases are considered familial. Hence, it affects 70% identical twins and 40% non identical twins. In comparison to non allergic parents, allergic parents are more likely to have allergic children.


Hygienic hypothesis: It is framework that indicates to an increase in allergic diseases in specific locations and areas in the United States. It also shows that allergic diseases are much less common in the developing world than developed world where industrial development is very high.


Environmental factors: Finally, it is environmental allergens such as weather, dust, food, pollution, animals, flowers, plants, animal hair, microorganisms, pollen and seafood that make immune system more prone to allergic diseases.
