    Bad bite: A tick can make you allergic to red meat
    sheba_q posted:
    This bizarre problem was only discovered a few years ago but is growing as the ticks spread from the Southwest and the East to more parts of the United States. In some cases, eating a burger or a steak has landed people in the hospital with severe allergic reactions.

    I would wonder if it is really a reaction to the GMO grasses and grains being fed to the steer.

    I had been diagnosed with IBS many years ago. To make a long story short, I have been on my own to identify the cause and deal with it myself.

    My husband and I saw two videos about what has happened to our food supply. For a very short time we purchased beef, chicken and eggs from free-range, pasture fed critters. Dairy cows are included. We experienced more constipation, indigestion and urinary problems. It was fortunate we realized what was happening to us just after a few weeks because It was too expensive to continue.

    Our food supply has been made corrupt and I was locked out of this site because I tried to share what I learned. Hopefully this will be allowed.

    This has nothing to do with the GMO foods that you seem to be obsessed with.
