  •  Beware of ticks (0+ / 0-)

    There is a relatively new thing where ticks can give you an allergy to beef, pork and lamb.

    It happened to me around 30 years ago, in Arkansas. Fortunately I knew what an allergic reaction was like, so have managed it all these years. Used to be people in food service looked at me funny when I told them about it, and it was very hard to avoid beef and pork, but now they just accept it and accommodate me.

    Non-fat milk is not a problem, but dairy products with fat will give me a bit of a headache. I assume it's the allergy.
