My topic for this year’s TED talk focused on Allergies; more specifically what are allergies, how they’re caused, and what are some cures/prevention. I first thought of this idea when my mother was feeling terrible from her spring allergies and I didn’t quite understand what made allergies so bad. So I chose to study this as my topic.
