Here is an article about it.
Personally, I never liked red meat much since a child, I guess from experience of eating less than tasty beef meals daily as a child.
That said, I recently had an allergic reaction after eating red meat (I never considered meat the possible culprit until now). I eat red meat perhaps
once every 3 months as I used to be vegetarian though have suffered anaemia often.
Anyway, my hands, legs, throat swelled and I felt really ill. I didn't go to my GP's as they are often useless, instead taking plenty antihistamine,
ibuprofen, aspirin and herbal remedies. The swelling subsided after a few days.
I don't recall ever being bitten by a tick. I am in the UK, which is far from Texas, but I guess there could be similar insects lurking in the UK that
causes the same reaction.
Oh, and your comment, was uncalled for.
I don't hate America but I can see it's faults. I am neither ''dirty'' nor a ''hippy''. Nor are any of the people that I know that see the faults of
Perhaps you should know, America is not the be all and end all of everything. It has it's ways, just like everywhere else and sometimes those ways are
offensive, just like everywhere else.
Perhaps the most offensive thing about America is it's egocentric views and that it appears that there are so many Americans that can't see the wood
for the trees. They think it's okay (it isn't) to be going about calling people names because they don't buy into ''perfect America'' or calling
people ''Putin lovers'' when they can see an injustice against Russia or wherever else the good ole US of A decided on declaring war upon. It is a
sort of egocentricity that is sort of bewildering to many, seeing as most of the world sees America as the land of brash commercialism instead of a
pillar of virtue on which to set standards.
There is international variation. America isn't perfect.
Or maybe those dirty America hating hippies.
