What are allergies and why do we get them?
Terms that can be used for 'allergies' are:
Familial non reaginic food allergy
Most common allergies:
0 - 6 months : diarrhoea
6 months - 2 years : eczema
2 - 10 years : asthma, hyperactivity
10 - 20 years : migraine
20 - 30 years : colitis
30 - 40 years : tiredness
40 - 70 years : arthritis
Changes in the Western diet over recent years, i.e. the use of food/chemical additives; food-refining, increase in animal produce consumption and environmental pollution, all contribute enormously to the prevalence of allergies.
¤ Over 100 years ago there were 150 chemicals in use, now there are well over 60,000.
¤ 100 years ago there were no electrical devices.
¤ 50 years ago food didn't contain the hormones, antibiotics and additives it does today.
