>> You have a problem with the way people act, not with the theory that there might be food sensitivities.
I have a problem with both.
I am willing to acknowledge that there *are* — relatively few — true, verifiable cases of food “allergy”, auto immune issues, whatever.
Are you willing to acknowledge that the VAST majority of food sensitivities are “designer diseases” promoted by Oprah-class media and seized upon by self-absorbed hypochondriacs?
If not, then explain how did humanity ever survive five thousand years of eating all the stuff that is now supposedly deadly in a widespread segment of the populus? No one on this thread has yet ponied up an answer to that vexing question.
Also: why are all these designer diseases problems primarily in the US, and not world wide? It’s not lack of wheat... could it be lack of Oprah?
There’s some things that just don’t add up.
I guarantee you I wasn't a hypochondriac when wheat gluten was literally causing me to waste away. I had never heard of Celiac disease. That was in the early 80s.
See my posts 60 and 74.
I do agree that a lot of these condition occur mostly on afternoon TV, but, one thing has changed in recent years that I think bears further scrutiny - genetically modified good. Today's wheat bares little microscopic resemblance to the wild wheat found growing on the plains years ago.
Pardon me for jumping in, but......
I do not require a doctor or an ANONYMOUS STRANGER to suggest that I am a hypochondriac when I see the palms of my hands and soles of my feet break into palmoplantar pustulosis whenever I eat too much bread (it looks as disgusting as it sounds).
And whenever an anomymous stranger believes they know my body better than I, it reminds me of "Oprah-Class Media" and Left Wing Nanny Nuts. Plenty of Freepers fall into this class.
