Are You Allergic to Cow’s Milk?

Food allergies are something that are commonly overlooked. We don’t pay much attention to the foods that we eat and how they impact our body unless it’s catastrophic. A fair bit of people are allergic to peanuts (which aren’t really nuts) and nuts in general, but what about the other things surrounding our life?

Many people think that they are lactose intolerant, but actually they just may be allergic to cow’s milk. Cow’s milk allergies are one of the most common allergies.  Here’s a few facts about Cow’s milk to have a closer look at.

1. Cow’s milk is not so easily digestible. This inability to digest leaves behind a residue in the colon which ferments, causing a build up of lactose and gives those uncomfortable symptoms associated with lactose intolerance.

2. 1 in 10 people are allergic to the type of protein contained in Cow’s milk

3.  Cow’s milk causes the body to produce mucous as an allergic reaction.
