What are allergies

An allergy is an overreaction of the defense system of the organism to various environmental factors. These factors are called antigens or allergens.
When any allergen comes into contact with the body, the body defends itself by producing  protective antibody immunoglobulin E (IgE). This protein is located in the body of every human being, but in small quantities, while in people who suffer from allergies there are many more. IgE is specific for each allergen, which is why are all allergies specific.

In some people,  defense system overreacts to antigenic stimuli, and antibodies to fight the antigens leads to allergic inflammation.
Such turbulent defensive reaction produces  inflammation, which  destroys the tissue, rather than to defend the body. The result of this reaction are the symptoms of allergies – locally occurring redness, swelling and itching. These symptoms can recognize as signs, eg. A cold and that’s because it’s the same defense mechanism except that this time the reaction is violent and not useful – in fact it’s not the harmful substances.

Allergies usually occur between 25 and 34 years. The men threatened earlier, at age 15, while women are equally exposed to all ages.
It has been shown that allergies often occur in families with a positive history of allergic diseases, but can`t inherit the defined allergies, but the tendency that the immune system reacts violently to antigens. If both parents are allergic, the likelihood that a child will be allergic is 75%. The child will be prone to allergies if the mother is allergic.

    These are just some with the few uses and
    effects from the garlic. In case, if you do not contain the time and
    energy to join any extra classes, make an effort to get more physical activity included with
    your routine: rather than using bus when you are going for shopping, you’ll be able to carry on foot.
    There are five things you need to think about to realize optimum health:

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

      My suggestion is that you write about the things you love.

    It is actually essential that you avoid this in the event you actually want to figure out
    to lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks. Lunch: Salad, boiled chicken,
    brown rice, grilled vegetables, tofu. In other words after lunch avoid breads, cereals, rice, pasta, potatoes and
    corn and complete on proteins and vegetables.

    First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
    if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you
    center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!
