Was It Something You Ate?: Food Intolerance: What Causes It and How to Avoid It by John Emsley and Peter Fell
For those suffering from unexplained symptoms, Food Intolerance must be considered because food intolerance symptoms vary greatly and mask themselves as other maladies. Â This book on food intolerance is unique in its discussion of chemicals we ingest and their effect on our systems.
It has been said that this is the first book for general readers that offers clear guidance on food intolerance and in particular food intolerance caused by chemicals in our foods. While most people are sensitive or have an intolerance to one or more chemicals in their diet, such as MSG, alcohol or caffeine, our bodies can usually tolerate only moderate amounts of these offending substances. If we know which chemicals give us a problem, or present a food intolerance, we can usually avoid unpleasant bouts of nausea, headache, and diarrhea.
This book helps identify the offending substances that can provoke a toxic response in the form of food intolerance–ranging from benzoates to serotonin, sorbates, and tyramines–and explains why food intolerance occurs, food intolerance symptoms, and why some people are so badly hit while others are not bothered at all. Each chapter is enhanced with actual case studies of people who have been stricken by substances in their diet. Based on proven medical and scientific research, this book can help people to avoid troublesome chemicals and enjoy their food.
