Egg-free – We Smile On

When reading through some blogs this morning, I came across someone asking, “Can a person who is allergic to eggs eat chicken?”   Great question!

While my son has an allergy to eggs, he is not allergic to chicken and eats it all the time.  However, I was curious to see if there are times when these two allergies are related.  During my researching, I found the following excellent resource for egg allergies.   It also includes a brief answer to this question.   Egg-free…we smile on…

    Interesting. My husband has a mild allergy/sensitivity to egg whites (he was tested years ago; they cause headaches) but not the yolks. He still eats them but is aware of the results, and has no problem with chicken. Thanks for the information. 🙂

      I found this interesting too especially since it was one worry that I actually did not think of on my own. Ha! I find the world of food allergies so interesting/mind-baffling confusing because of reasons just like your husband’s case with eggs. Thank you so much for reading and sharing his experience. =)

    I love the purpose of your blog site. As a doctor, I am constantly researching why allergies have become so much more prevalent. 50 years ago we ate the same “real” foods (eggs, peanuts, chicken, beef, etc…) If the food, in and of itself, created an abnormal immune response, why didn’t this occur 50 years ago with any regularity? Is it possible environmental toxicity, food preservatives, coloring, synthetic chemicals, adjuvants, heavy metals, GMO,EMF, etc… can affect normal body function and reactions? We have a tendency to search for an answer to the SYMPTOM (ex. avoid a food to prevent an allergic reaction?) rather than search for the ROOT CAUSE (ex. what FACTORS are involved that interfere with NORMAL bodily functions?) of the problem.
    I noticed you had gone onto my site and viewed some articles. I try not to solicit my blog site on other people’s sites, so I won’t write the name. I would welcome your comments, because your experiences are real life experiences more people need exposure to. My site deals with many of these types of health issues and looks to provide solutions to the root causes as well.
    Keep blogging! More people need to see that our current approach to health needs significant improvement.

      Thank you again for sharing your expertise and ideas regarding this world of food allergies. Aside from main focus of advocating and protecting my son, I have turned what is left of my attention to searching for the root cause of everything. I have gotten past the part of blaming myself for my son’s allergies and instead want to work on my own health as much as possible for any future children that I am blessed to have. With my son, I continue to look for ways to build up his gut health and overall immune system. I do plan to stop by your blog often as many of the topics that I read already relate to our experience already. Thank you for the words of encouragement. While I have only begun blogging, the desire to want to educate and help others becomes stronger and stronger every day. Thanks again!

    So true! I get asked all the time about what dairy products really include. Many people lump eggs into dairy, simply because it is in the dairy aisle. Overall, I’m mostly happy to have people who care enough about me to research and find recipes that are safe, even if sometimes they go beyond necessary precautions.

      That’s amazing and very encouraging to have people who do that! I hope more and more people start to open up their eyes and minds to how common food allergies really are. Thank you for sharing. =)
