“9 out of 10 have mild to severe gastrointestinal difficulties – e.g. ulcers, acid reflux, IBS, etc.” As a child, I often had nausea and stomach aches. I went through a period ten years ago when I had such severe ulcers that I would throw up within a minute of eating or drinking anything. Sugar makes my joints burn, and I’m allergic to genetically modified corn and dairy. I’ll randomly grow intolerances to my favorite foods (black beans, peanut butter, etc.) and have to cut them out for a year before my body can digest them properly again. But I refuse to let food run my life! I’m happy with all the delicious food, like this veggie ramen and ginger salad that I can eat!
