Lentil Allergy (Overview)

An allergy to a food is due to an immune system reaction. It can lead to hives, an itchy rash, swelling, tingling, swelling of the lips/tongue/mouth, vomiting, belly pain diarrhea, cough, shortness of breath, low blood pressure and unconsciousness. Lentil allergy can be performed by blood and skin testing. I recommend bringing in the prepared lentil for prick on prick testing to diagnose this.

How could a guy like me, who's has an allergy to lentils and soy become a vegan?

Why do you ask?: Perhaps being a vegan -- which offers strong moral but not much in the way of measurable health benefits -- isn't right for you.
