Till now such problems were limited only to digestion or allergies, but recently a research warned that the problem of common food allergies can prove fatal for the heart as well. This research from the University of Virginia, USA, has been published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. Researchers monitored 5,374 people for a long time and found that the risk of heart diseases from common food allergies is higher than smoking and diabetes.
