Can bee pollen trigger allergic reactions?

Bee pollen appears to be safe for most people, at least for the short term. But if you have pollen allergies, you may get more than you bargained for. Bee pollen can cause a serious allergic reaction -- including shortness of breath, hives, swelling, and anaphylaxis.
