Hello and welcome back to The Most Amazing
Top 10 channel on the internet! I am your host Miss Rebecca Jane Felgate and
today we’re doing a subscriber requested video – the Top 10 Scary Food Allergies. This video was suggested by our subscriber
Magenta FoxRose and we’re hoping to raise a little bit more awareness as to allergies
and clear labeling! Before we get into this video, why don’t
you get me know if you have any allergies? I am allergic to dust and am sensitive to
yeast so I don’t really eat bread for fear of the bloat! I don’t wanna be parping all day long…is
that an overshare? I guess we’ve known each other a while now
! Let me know what you are allergic to or sensitive
to in the comments section down below – share and overshare as much as you want! LIKE SHARE SO lets do this… we have Kiwi at number
10. A true story – my mum almost killed one of
her friends by serving a trifle at a dinner party. It was only after he started choking did he
think to ask her if there was Kiwi in the pudding. There was and he had to go to hospital. It seems Kiwi allergies are on the up and
they can be very deadly, causing Anaphylactic shock. Kiwis can be particularly deadly to young
children. Kiwis often make up bulks of smoothies and
sorbets, which means some people might not even know they are ingredients in food. Kiwi allergy symptoms are mouth tingling and
swelling, numbness, shortness of breath, abdominal pains, vomiting and nausea, a drop in blood
pressure, a fast beating heart, loss of consciousness and of course anaphylaxis. Oddly it seems Kiwi allergies are linked to
Birch trees. In places with more birch trees, there are
more reported kiwi allergies. This might not kill you, but it might kill
your dog at number 9 Chocolate People have died from eating chocolate, but
that is usually down to a milk allergy…. However some people are allergic to coco beans,
including one of our channel editors, Dylan. A cocoa allergy is rare…although a lot of
people, including asthmatics are likely to have a sensitivity to it. DOGS it seems are allergic to chocolate – you’ll
likely have heard eating chocolate can kill dogs. I suppose ALLERGIC isn’t the right word
– they won’t have an allergic reaction – they just can’t metabolize Theobromine, a component
in chocolate toxic to dogs. Small dogs are especially sensitive. In large amounts, the theobromine poisoning
can cause muscle tremors, seizures, irregular heartbeats and internal bleeding in dogs. How sad its that! 8 – Shell Fish
Eating Shellfish has killed people and a shellfish allergy doesn’t always present from birth,
a lot of adults have suffered allergies as they have got older. For those with shellfish allergies they are
unable to cope with the proteins found in crustaceans and mollusks and their bodies
have an abnormal response. People with shellfish allergies can come out
in hives and welts, their lips can swell, they may have difficulty breathing, and they
can go in to shock. 7 – Fugu Okay this is cheating as Fugu, or pufferfish
, can actually be poisonous to anyone, and the deaths eating it cause are as a result
of toxic attack rather than an allergic reaction… but if we’re doing a scary food list, we
gotta be chatting Fugu. Served as a delicacy in many Japanese restaurants,
often as a sashim dish, the skin of a puffer fish and some of its organs contain an extremely
poisonous toxin, called Tetro-do-toxin, that can paralyze humans, with many cases of poisoning
leading to death. Now this is actually a horrible way to die
– the poison is 1000 times more deadly than cyanide and will at first paralyse you, while
you remain awake, your respiratory system will then shut down and you will suffocate
to death. Unfortunately there isn’t a cure.Chefs in
Japan spend at least three years learning how to prepare the dish, culminating in a
test that only 1 in 3 pass. Unfortunately, there are still errors. In 2011, a two-Michelin-starred chef in Tokyo
specializing in fugu managed to poison a diner and had his license revoked. I am a food lover but I would not try fugu. Ever. 6 – Wheat
Allergies and intolerances are different – plenty of people are intolerant to wheat or gluten. In fact it seems 20 million people in the
USA alone have a gluten condition…. But there are some people who are deathly
allergic. In September 2014 a worker at a factory in
Inianapolis died after being exposed to wheat dust. It seems he developed asthma after working
at the factory and then, age 30, died of a severe asthma attack after prolonged wheat
exposure. The company had introduced wheat and barley
into its malting operations just months prior to the incident. 5 – Dairy
A lot of people have dairy intolerances and allergies these days; it can kill. Recently the death of a teenager who died
after celebrating his birthday at popular chain Byron in the UK made headlines. Owen Carey ordered a skinny grilled chicken
but was unaware it had butter milk in the marinade. A young boy died this year in the UK after
eating a chocolate bar that contained milk powder and in Toronto recently a vegan restaurant
served a woman a dish that contained milk powder, nearly leading her to death. It seems that Vittoria Rabito informed her
server at the Vegandale Brewery that she had a dairy allergy, despite the restaurant being
an animal product free location. The staff didn’t realize that a seasoning
on the pulled pork taco she ate contained milk powder. Rabito knew within one bite that she was in
trouble. She took her epipen and was rushed to hospital. Another one of those maybe not an allergy
but definitely don’t go around eating this things at number 4, we have lizards. In December 2018, a man died after eating
a lizard at a Christmas party in Australia. 34 year old David Dowell was a happy go lucky
man who ate a gecko as a dare and had a horrendous reaction. Within days of eating the lizard David was
was vomiting green bile and his testicles had swollen to the size of grapefruits, with
a strange liquid leaking from them. Salmonella was blamed although it is possible
he ingested a tape worm. His girlfriend said he rotted from the inside
out. Soo…. you know…….. Please don’t go eating lizards. 3 – Sesame Sesame allergies have majorly been in the
news over the past few years since a teenage girl died after eating a Pret Artichoke, olive
and tapenade Sandwich on a flight to Nice. She was sat next to her father as she took
a bite from the sandwich she bought at Heathrow Terminal 5 and he describes her reaction as
“like an explosion”. Her body came out in huge red welts and she
started struggling to breathe. Her epipen didnt work and she went into cardiac
arrest. He said her last words were Daddy, help me,
I can’t breathe’. How awful. Sesame seeds can be deadly those with allergies
– it seems 300,000 people in the US are allergic – making it the 9th most common food allergy
in America. The biggest food allergy is coming in to number
two, and the most common killer, we have peanuts. It seems between 1.5 to 3 percent of the Western
World’s child population has a peanut allergy. Death from peanut allergies as a result of
negligence in the food industry is a sad and repetitive tale. There soso many stories of people dying after
not realizing they have eaten something with peanuts in, and others who are left with irreversible
brain damage. Around 200 people die in the western world
of peanut allergies each year! So rather than list a food at number one,
I thought I would give you some very scary Statistics
It seems that more and more people are suffering food allergies than ever. The number is increasing and the rise in allergies
in recent decades has been particularly noticeable in the West. Food allergy now affects about 7% of children
in the UK and 9% of those in Australia/ Across Europe, 2% of adults have food allergies. there was a five-fold increase in peanut allergies
in the UK between 1995 and 2016. It is also noticed that food allergies tend
to effect people who live in urban areas rather than rural ones…. So…our urban and metropolitain lifestyles
are actually increasing our risk of developing deadly allergies! Scientists think that the rise could be as
a result of pollution…others say it is a worldwide decrease in vitamin D, while some
say that kids decreased exposure to dirt is not allowing them to develop antibodies early
on. Whatever is happening, there is a worrying
trend…which means we need to take food labelling more seriously and know what to do if a person
is suffering an allergic reaction. Usually antihistamines in strong doses are
vital! SO do you guys suffer an allergy? Let me know! I guess I am also quite allergic to freshly
cut grass…. But I love the smell! Thanks again Magenta FoxRose for the video
suggestion… I think it is an important topic! Comments from The Top 10 Funniest Pictures
