Allergies have always fascinated me. This might seem strange since I have several allergies and have had some not-so-fun experiences with allergic reactions. But it just seems so strange that a food or other allergen that triggers a reaction in one person will have no effect on another. I'm baffled by it, actually. What's even more baffling, though, is that allergies are more and more prevalent. How is that possible? According to a Globe and Mail article, one in 13 Canadians has a serious food allergy. I wonder which part of the ratio I come under?
