Tyler takes a look at food allergies in teens. Food allergies occur in some people, when the body’s immune system, which normally fights infection, gets confused and begins attacking foods we eat. Heather Braverman is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish. If she even comes in contact with these foods, Heather experiences severe symptoms called anaphylaxis. We learn how she deals with her food allergies and get some advice on what to do if you have friends with food allergies.
