I don't know if this has been posted before, but I found something regarding Tick bites and meat allergy which I had never heard or read about... Just posting for informational purposes.
Tick Bites and Red Meat Allergy
Australian allergic diseases physicians have recently described an association between tick bites and the development of red meat allergy (references 8, 10-12), which sparked interest from US researchers (reference 9). They have subsequently identified the part of the red meat allergen giving rise to the allergic reactions, galactose alpha-1,3-galactose. These allergic reactions to red meat typically occur in individuals who have had local allergic reactions to ticks. Within six months or so they develop anaphylaxis to red meat which almost invariably occurs several hours after the eating of the red meat. Rarely, these red meat allergic reactions, as with anaphylaxis in general, may be profound due to the co-existence of an increased number of mast cells (mastocytosis).
