I guess the subject of food problems like intolerances might seem a bit out of place here.The point is that if I eat anything I'm intolerant to it can be a serius problem.The easy thing I do is just stay off the things I can't eat.

Denv12, Food intolerance, also known as non-IgE mediated food hypersensitivity or non-allergic food hypersensitivity, refers to difficulty in digesting certain foods. It is important to note that food intolerance is different from food allergy. Food allergy triggers the immune system, while food intolerance does not. Some people suffer digestive problems after eating certain foods even though their immune system has not reacted - there is no histamine response. Foods most commonly associated with food intolerance include dairy products, grains that contain gluten, and foods that cause intestinal gas buildup, such as beans and cabbage.
