Alert: (Tick-Borne) Bug That Can Give People Lifelong Allergy to Meat Is on the Move


"Summer is finally here, but warmer weather also means that there could be hidden menaces waiting for you outside.

Most people who spend time outdoors already know about the potential dangers from ticks, such as Lyme disease, which is known to be carried by the parasite. But experts are now warning about another worrying disease which can be transmitted by ticks, and it seems to be spreading.
On Thursday CTV News reported that the Lone Star tick may be expanding its range to more northern areas of North America. Nobody wants to be bitten by a tick, but this species is particularly troublesome because it can spread a serious allergy which makes people ill from eating meat.
“A veterinary clinic in southern Ontario is sounding the alarm after discovering a rare tick known to cause a meat allergy in humans,” the Canadian news outlet said. A post from the Oakridge Animal Clinic confirms that a cat was found with a Lone Star tick that is believed to have come from north of the border.
That’s a big deal, since the tick was believed to be fairly isolated to warmer climates."
