Watch the video of how Australian scientists are playing with our genetics.
Clemens von Pirquet defined allergy in 1906 as: an acquired, specific, altered capacity of the tissues of the body to react to given substances. This means that our body is over-reacting to a substance that is normally safe. So what causes our body to over-react in this way?
