A type of hypersensitivity pneumonitis associated with animal exposure is bird fancier’s lung, in which the major antigens are proteins in avian serum, feces, and feathers, including bloom, the waxy powder coating them (18). Pigeons and parakeets, including budgerigars (a type of parakeet), are the birds most commonly implicated, but poultry, finches, doves, canaries, and other birds also have caused the disease. Exposure to live birds is not necessary to produce hypersensitivity pneumonitis: the illness has resulted from using feather pillows and duvets (19), being exposed to a wreath made from the feathers of a dead pet bird (20), and laundering a pigeon keeper’s overalls (21). Other examples of animal proteins that are known to have caused the disease when inhaled include proteins from the dust of mollusk shells used to make buttons (22) and from animal fur used in garment manufacture
Why the other answer choices aren't correct
A - Not an anaphylactic reaction mainly due to chronicity (consumption of soy, which has glycoproteins that people may have allergies towards)
B - Not asthma (characterized by more acute episodes of bronchoconstriction, wheezing)
D - Anemia (B6, B9, B12), or maybe a pulmonary embolism due to B9 or B12 deficiency --> elevated homocysteine levels --> thrombosis --> DVT?
E - Pulmonary anthrax; The time course would be much more acute, and would also present with symptoms of flu-like symptoms. Rapid death too
