So if you have sensitives to Ragweed, you should watch your consumption of. The foods that most commonly cause oral allergy syndrome in ragweed allergy sufferers are banana, chamomile tea, cucumber, dandelion, Echinacea, melon (cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon), sunflower seeds and zucchini. If Grass Pollen is an issue for you, watch consumption of celery, melons, oranges, tomatoes and peaches. Food for thought and mindfulness.
