I have been reading quite a bit about children dying from food allergies. Today I read something on the Huffington Post about a rocker going into anaphylaxis from eating a single blue m & m. Rocker, Liam Gallagher, at age 40 reacted violently to eating a blue m & m that had a peanut in it. His mouth began to swell and his throat began to tighten. He developed anaphylaxis and was seen by a doctor who told him he had a peanut allergy. He now carries something with him (most likely an epi-pen).
This is just a reminder to all of us that we can develop an allergy to peanuts or any other food at any age. Out of the blue our body can decide that it isn’t going to tolerate any more of a protein in a certain food. It is also a reminder to take food allergies and intolerances seriously.
