Fake vegan meat is dangerous to peanut allergy sufferers: Pea protein could cause fatal anaphylaxis

(Natural News) Vegan meats could bring adverse health effects, most especially to those who are allergic to pea protein. Elana Levine, an allergy specialist in Ontario, Canada, witnessed first-hand the effects of the protein extracts from yellow peas that are used to emulate the texture and taste of animal meat in vegan meat products. It was when...

Peanuts and tree nuts are two of the most common elicitors of immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated food allergy. Nut allergy is frequently associated with systemic reactions and can lead to potentially life-threatening respiratory and circulatory symptoms. Furthermore, nut allergy usually persists throughout life. Whether sensitized patients exhibit severe and life-threatening reactions (e.g., anaphylaxis), mild and/or local reactions (e.g., pollen-food allergy syndrome) or no relevant symptoms depends much on IgE recognition of digestion-resistant class I food allergens, IgE cross-reactivity of class II food allergens with res...

AbstractImmunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated food allergy is a real public health problem worldwide. The prevalence of food allergy is particularly high in children. Patients with food allergy experience high morbidity with a change in quality of life due to the risk of severe anaphylaxis. Current treatment options are poor. Allergen avoidance is widely recommended but exposes patients to accidental ingestion. Oral immunotherapy is also used in patients with food allergies to the most common allergens. Oral immunotherapy consists of a daily administration of small, gradually increasing amounts of allergens to induce desensitisa...

SummaryBackgroundCorrect recognition of risk factors enables individualized management and treatment of venom allergic patients.MethodsSystematic research and review of current literature regarding the risk of (1)  severe sting-induced anaphylaxis, (2) anaphylactic adverse event during venom immunotherapy (VIT), and (3) treatment failure.Results and discussion(1)  Mastocytosis is the most important risk factor for severe sting-induced anaphylaxis. Hereditary α‑tryptasemia was recently identified as a genetic predictor of severe reactions. Older age is clearly associated with an increased ri...
