NASTY FOOD ADDITIVES THAT CAUSE ALLERGIC REACTIONS
Certain triggers often found in foods can cause a horrible reaction and these incidents are increasing exponentially.

615% increase in hospital admissions for anaphylaxis in 20 years, 1992-2012 (Turner et al, JACI, 2015)

50% of children and young people have one or more allergy within the first 18 years of life (Journal of Clinical & Experimental Allergy, 2009)

An estimated 21 million adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy (Mintel, 2010)
That's out of a population of 64 million.

The UK is one of the top three countries in the world for the highest incident of allergy (The Allergenic Invasion, 1999)

Nice to know we're good at something over here.

It doesnt matter how hard you try to avoid things you know will trigger an allergic reaction, every so often you eat something that you dont know contains an E additive or a sulphite which can cause a really nasty attack on your immune system.

These additives have been added to stop food from developing mold which they say is bad for you. Really they mean it's bad for their profits. They would happily see you in your grave than forego their damned profits. Killing the consumer or making them really ill is counterproductive.

20 million adults and 50% of the children in the UK have allergies. Doesnt really leave many people who are not suffering. We need healthier food.

lala

Here's a list of food additives. Really, do we need so many.

while the politicians are too busy with their own personal problems, I cant see this problem being addressed anytime soon.

thanks for the bump

I also discovered recently that not all yogurt cultures are the same.

Yogurts containing Streptococcus thermophiluscause me to have strong flu like symptoms

whereas bio cultures
Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium

are great, make the body work well and help clear the head.

Most yogurts dont identify which culture they use, so you could find you are poisoning your system without knowing it.

Basically they are slowly killing us all. You think you've got it worked out, but at some stage you will slip up and eat something innocent looking that causes a very nasty reaction.

allergies are your immune system overreacting to something that isn't normally a threat to the body. allergies mean that your immune system is functioning at a high level and it has nothing else to fight. compulsive hand washing and ultra clean environments have lead to this.

if you take allergy medicine, you are taking a immuno-suppresant. germs in small amounts can be helpful because they give the immune system something to fight.

I'm not talking of something that is not normally a threat such as food itself, I'm referring to additives, chemical substances which are used to make food 'tastier' more 'appealing' or to prevent mold growth. It's the chemicals that are not supposed to be there which are causing the reaction.

Anyone who has ever suffered from allergy knows there are triggers such as sprays which cause a similar response.

It's the chemicals!!!!!

You just need to look at the statistics to see it's not normal for nearly all people to be reacting in this way. I'm talking about the number of people requiring hospital treatment.

Please see statistics from link posted above.
