When food fools your body

Food allergies occur when your immune system makes a mistake. Normally, your immune system protects you from germs and disease by making antibodies that help you fight off bacteria, viruses and other tiny organisms that can make you sick. But if you have a food allergy, your immune system mistakenly treats something in a certain food as if it is really dangerous to you. So, it is not the thing that is harmful, but the way your body reacts to it.
