On Allergies: Is Modern Medicine Fighting the Causes of This Ailment?
Are Doctors Telling Us Everything?

Allergies are abnormal reactions of the immune system that occur in
response to otherwise harmless substances.
An allergy is a heightened sensitivity to a foreign substance (called an
allergen) which causes the body's defense system (the immune system) to
overreact when defending itself. Normally, the immune system would only
react if a harmful substance, such as a bacteria, attacks the body. For
people with allergies, their own immune system is working too hard, and
it reacts even when relatively harmless substances such as pollen are
present. The severity of an allergic reaction can vary from mild
discomfort to life threatening situations.
Allergies are among the most common of medical disorders. It is
estimated that 60 million Americans, or more than one in every five
people, suffer from some form of allergy, with similar proportions
throughout much of the rest of the world. Allergy is the single largest
reason for school absence and is a major source of lost productivity in
Wow! These dreadful allergies are going to get us! What kind of
wunderkinds wrote the above paragraphs, and trying to fool everyone?
I feel I have been deceived in a big way for the second time, maybe
more, by the medical profession. I wonder why would doctors hide all
the information about the truth on allergies and other medical
knowledge, and the only explanation that comes to my mind is financial
stakes behind this single largest industry in the USA - that in size
leaves behind aerospace, automotive, petroleum industries, to name a
few. In fact, by economic size Medical Industry is at least three times
as large as the Automotive Industry of the USA!
I was able to understand allergies through my conversations with
friends, doctors, reading news, encyclopedias, articles and books on
immune system, and most importantly - through observations of myself and
those around me. Why can I understand some things in such a plain way
while doctors try to keep the fog around it, and my part is only obeying
to their prescriptions?
Humans are like cars...
...In many ways human beings are similar to cars...Driver is like a
soul, a car is like our body, and immune system resembles on board
computer of the car...
I have some university engineering education, so when my car has a
problem, I first try to find a solution by myself before taking it to a
mechanic. Someone told me that in America one should not trust three
categories of people: mechanics, doctors, and politicians.
