Is it possible that sulfa residue in food is causing my daily asthma/allergy symptoms? In a nutshell: extremely allergic to sulfa antibiotics, moved to US about 11 years ago after being raised eating mainly food grown nearby or by neighbors, began having asthma/chronic cough issues shortly thereafter. Batteries of allergy tests have never been able to ID the trigger. Recently realized that sulfa is one of antibiotics that farmers here feed livestock as if it were some kind of candy. [more inside]
