What is an allergy?
Allergies are exaggerated immune reactions, which cause damage or inflammation. They are different from the “protective” immune reactions that occur in our body after vaccination (triple vaccine, against measles or pneumococcus) or when suffering from an infection. It is estimated that approximately 10 to 15% of people suffer from some type of allergic disease, and there is evidence that shows that the incidence of those diseases is increasing worldwide. An allergy is the hypersensitivity to particles or substances that are commonly harmless to most people.
