Tick-Caused Meat Allergy on Rise in U.S.

Red meat allergy caused by a bite from the lone star tick appears to be on the rise in the United States, a researcher says.

More than 5,000 cases have been reported in the U.S., up from 3,500 two years ago, according to Dr. Tara Narula, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, CBS News reported.

It’s only been within the last decade that medical experts have started to understand the condition, Narula said on CBS This Morning Thursday.
