I loved apples when I was growing up. Unfortunately, since living in the U. S., I have become allergic to them. People don’t believe me when I say I get an allergic reaction to apples. I always believed it had something to do with the food supply and all the genetic engineering that’s going on just so food would stay fresh longer or resist diseases and pests. I have a friend whose two year old has a peanut allergy. Even babies are developing allergies so early on. For more information, read this article about the link between food allergies and genetically modified foods. One more reason to go organic perhaps.
