Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Mediated right. So your immune system is recognizing this food as an invader and goes on attack mode you know and starts attacking it and releasing histamine and all kinds of signing kinds and then what happens in your body. Is this cascade. So that's why it's so hard with food allergies because your reaction can be mild. You can just have high. It's sometimes vomiting but then it can get severe very fast and that could be trouble breathing. Row closing a drop in blood pressure and it can even be left is threatening so it is this wide gamut right from very mild reactions very severe reactions and right now in the world of food allergy.

How much of it you aid if you're immune system's compromised in any way during that time there's so many variables that that's why quality of life is so hard because you don't know to accidentally ingest. Will it be a severe reaction that takes you to the emergency room. Mar a mild reaction. The immune system is of course as w saw right so i'm thinking evolution only maybe fifty thousand thousand years ago. These are sort of table right. The foods nuts and animals. That ho sapiens aid would come in with a small area and so from the audience perspective. They had very good here states. Do identify what the school and what's not Is that what is causing in.

Everyone was taking peanut butter and jelly school. Every day you know all those things you here and now in this generation you're seeing such high rates so what when you mentioned is exactly right like how did we eat back then..
