Food Allergy in Children and Adults

  • Tatsuo Matsumura

Abstract

Two thousand years ago Lucretius (96–55 BC) said that “One man’s food might be another’s poison.” Food allergy is defined in a broader sense as an altered allergic reaction to food. In a narrower sense, it means the development of an allergic reaction mediated by humoral and cellular factors involving immune mechanisms.
