Are claimed food allergies hocus-pocus?

    I think a lot of them are.

    I encounter folks who say they're allergic to everything but water and brown rice. Somehow, I doubt it.

    Some may be, but some aren't. I haven't found the difference between Prego, and Ragu sauces yet, but I get violently ill when I consume one, but not the other...

    A family friend of mine, Jack, had TONS of food allergies. He was the type that couldn't eat practically anything. Within the last year he learned that all he has to do is eat yogurt in the morning and then he can eat whatever he wants safely for the rest of the day. Don't ask how or why because I haven't the faintest idea why. But it blew my mind because the dude is in his mid 50's and up until this year he'd never had a slice of pizza, or a lobster, or brownie, etc and but now the entire menu is wide open to him. It must be amazing to have all that new food opened up to you so late in life.

    Not surprizing, you have little compassion or openness to others who are different than you.

    If all that from yogurt, he's lucky. Healthy bacteria=probiotics:

    What does your post have to do with anything? Lots of people are pansy-assed whiners, and all to quick to diagnose some medical phenomenon, rather than just manning the fuck up and dealing.

    Have you ever met someone with irritable bowl syndrome?

    What you are saying has been said about nearly every medical condition before we fully understood it.

    Its a sign of inability to trust and respect your fellow man and their pain and blight.

    My dog (avatar) has extreme allergies. We have spent a small fortune with vets trying to solve his allergies. Yogurt, cranberry pills and supplements are the most helpful for him. No regular dog food.

    I guess some would think he is just faking it for attention.

    Do you feed him boiled chicken and rice?

    Trader Joes has some alternate dog food choices.

    He is a beautiful boy.
