Stop it! In fact shut up! I’m a vegan not by choice! I found out about three years ago that my body because of Lyme disease causes an allergic reaction.
The tick’s saliva triggers immune response to a carbohydrate, alpha-gal, found in red meat. Although eating red meat is the most common allergic trigger to alpha-gal, ingredients found in everyday products such as dairy, gelatin, soap, cosmetics, lotions, household products, and medications can also cause an allergic reaction.*
Symptoms: Can develop 3-4 hours after exposure and include upset stomach, headaches, hives, rashes, swelling, shortness of breath, anaphylaxis. Stop thinking you know what a vegan is, YOU DON’T HAVE A CLUE! And you look and sound stupid.
