Allergy & Autoimmunity
Nuts, flowers in bloom, cats or jewellery – the most ordinary things in life can trigger massive physical reactions in allergy sufferers. It is a case of mistaken identity, though. The body identifies foreign but harmless proteins as an enemy and mounts a defence. Allergies are not the only thing that can provoke a negative reaction from the body. Autoimmune diseases, which are responsible for the immune system attacking the body's own cells and tissues, are on the rise. In addition to a genetic predisposition, causes include the challenges of modern life – such as plasticisers in cosmetics, particulate matter or nicotine. Medicine has already identified more than 500 different autoimmune diseases.
