Male Speaker: Most people are concerned about food allergy. What will be the most common food allergies you would be concerned about? Male Speaker: Well, it varies from adults to children, and among children probably the commonest probably would be cow's milk allergy, and after that probably it's egg allergy, and that's probably followed that after in the young children. I think in adults, the commonest probably are nuts and probably followed by shellfish allergy, as far as food is concerned. Male Speaker: In this time of year we have great concern about egg allergy for different reasons. The vaccine that we give for flu is made through eggs. So we have some concern about this. But, the measle vaccine which has a little content of the egg, according to the manufacturer, they don't think it's a problem, but everybody should make a valued judgment because they are using eggs to grow culture and life, viruses to make vaccines. Is that true? Male Speaker: Yes.
