    Ticks, Meat and YOU!

    I Just happen to come across this weird allergic issue and the cause.

    So, yes you can become allergic to meat, and yes It can be from a tick bite.
    Crazy, eh?
    At first this tick spawned allergy just seems kooky, or something to joke about ( I can see PETA using the types of ticks or larva to force people to stop eating meat, LOL).
    It's kind of crazy as a hunter to have to take the chance out in the woods, that the thing you kill for food might actually be something you can't eat, because you are in the woods risking tick bites and allergies.

    Except any one who goes into the woods should always check themselves for ticks afterwords.

    I'd take meat allergy over TBE or Lyme disease any day.

    I would gladly sit there with a knife and fork eating a steak with an epinephrine auto-injector!

    I always had a phobia of ticks. Now I know why!
    Met the ghost of Stephen Foster at the Hotel Paradise
    This is what I told him as I gazed into his eyes
    Ships are made for sinking, whisky made for drinking
    If we were made of cellophane we'd all get stinking drunk much faster...
