An allergy arises when our body actually repels harmless substances. Our immune system can react to everything. A food allergy is particularly unpleasant. Even people with house dust allergy can hardly avoid the allergens, i.e. the allergy-causing substances.

Allergies are on the rise worldwide: While only one to two percent of people suffered from hay fever at the end of the 1920s, it is now twelve percent. But why is that? After all, our ancestors, who predominantly lived in rural surroundings, could hardly afford an allergy to animal hair or a pollen allergy in everyday life. In addition to genetic factors and environmental influences, scientists also blame excessive hygiene in the industrialized countries, as this undermines the children’s immune system and ultimately overreacts.

[…] Allergies are generally to be understood as an immune reaction to factors that are not inherently harmful, which can place a heavy burden on the respective organism. Allergies are always acquired, that is, they are based on the formation of antibodies, which is caused in the case of an animal hair allergy by the action of certain animal proteins on the organism. An indicator of the allergic reaction is the increase in the so-called IgE, an immunoglobulin, which can be measured in the blood.
