"Although most people describe any illness which they think maybe caused by food as a food allergy, they may only be partially correct.
There are in fact two different conditions which link food and 'allergic reactions'. One is food allergy: a condition which is rarely curable in which specific foods cause an immediate and often dramatic physical reaction - vomiting, diarrhoea, cramps, wheezing, swelling of the airways, a severe drop in blood pressure etc.
