GOSH, AND IT SEEMED SO LIKELY THAT GRAIN, DAIRY, AND LEGUMES HAD SUDDENLY BECOME TOXIC TO HUMANS...:

Millions wrongly think they have food allergy (Rebecca Smith, 21 Jan 2010, Daily Telegraph)

One in five adults think they are allergic to food, with most stating a wheat intolerance as the problem.

However, when they are actually tested just two per cent have a genuine allergy or intolerance, a report from the University of Portsmouth said.

Women are more likely to report a food allergy than men and it is thought the increase in the use of home testing kits and fad diets and celebrity eating regimes may be fuelling the misconceptions.
