Almost half the population of Britain could be suffering from food intolerance resulting in weight gain, diabetes and other complications.Crumbs! (Apologies to any wheat intolerant readers)…
So, which set of scientific geniuses has come to this conclusion then?
Figures released by Allergy UK, a charity set up to help the millions of people who suffer from food sensitivity, estimate that 45 per of the country's population is affected by the condition.Well, they would. Wouldn’t they?
What sort of people are these?
Well, here’s a classic stable, reasonable individual:
"There's been a 10 fold increase in people with food intolerances in the UK in the last 25 years," said Cyndi O'Meara, an expert nutritionist and author of "Changing Habits, Changing Lives Cook Book."Has there, Cyndi-with-a-y? Has there really?
"A big part of the problem is that we are assaulting our children with chemicals because the food that we are feeding them isn't real anymore, it's just a bunch of food additives, flavourings and colourings.
"If it's not margarine then it is modified milk, artificial sweeteners, and manmade sugars all of this has been put into the diet over the last 25 years which has resulted in hyper sensitive immune systems that react to everything a person eats."
Or have people like you simply grown fat (ho, ho) on the proceeds of ‘diagnosing’ this and writing about it?
