DESCRIPTION: The rising incidence of tick-bite induced meat allergies may account for cases of previously unexplained (“idiopathic”) persistent hives among children.
What is this alpha gal stuff? Make sure you see the “backgrounder” video Alpha Gal and the Lone Star Tick (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/alpha-gal-and-the-lone-star-tick).
I previously covered anisakis in Allergenic Fish Worms (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/allergenic-fish-worms/) and other allergenic parasite reactions in Chronic Headaches and Pork Tapeworms (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/chronic-headaches-and-pork-tapeworms/).
The worms might not the only thing increasing allergies in fish. See:
