i have, probably with and without knowing it. But i was just having some salad with OBVIOUS oregano now, so it worried me.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Well unlikely you will be allergic to basil, oregano, or even beans because in your life you have more than likely have had each of these if you have had pizza and Mexican food.

well, the weird thing is, I also ate nuts all my life, and peanuts even, and the test showed i was allergic. So im now i am unsure and question all food groups.
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
Well peanuts and nuts are a very strange food group and we find that people develop allergies to these peanuts and nuts over time and many times even kids who were allergic to them are no longer allergic after many years later.
