Tick Bites and Red Meat Allergies

If you love nothing more than a nice, juicy steak fresh from the grill, you should take care to avoid ticks this season. According to a researcher from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a bite from the lone star tick can lead to a red meat allergy— and these ticks seem to be more prevalent than ever.

This allergy is on the rise, with 5000 cases reported nationwide. This is up from 3500 two years ago. The best way to avoid developing a red meat allergy thanks to a tick bite is prevention.
