Overview on Allergy
- 11 Months ago
Allergy is a catch-all word for a wide variety of reactions to substances that the body determines to be foreign. Anything that it does not recognize as itself can be considered an allergen. When the body encounters a foreign substance, it reacts by making antibodies. When antibodies are released into the system, they cause an inflammatory reaction we call an allergy. Allergies are extremely common, and they are on the rise.
