Article: Allergies Associated with Heart Disease

I found this to be an interesting article. Note that it does NOT say that allergies CAUSE heart disease, but that based on population data researchers found that a higher percentage of people (mainly women under 50) with allergies also had heart disease. The researchers don't know why this is, but they speculate as to a number of reasons.

Sometimes the heart disease and the allergies can have a common cause. In my case, any food containing canola oil was making me very sick. I had very serious heart and pulmonary problems which have disappeared since I have eliminated canola from my diet. My cardiologist and my lung specialist have confirmed that my pulmonary hypertension has completely disappeared.
