The latest epidemic, and this is probably real.

One in five Britons is now labouring under the misapprehension that they are suffering from a food allergy.
No shit.
One in five Britons now claims to have a food allergy or intolerance, with most stating wheat as the problem. That is an increase of 400 per cent in the past 20 years.
...
Now research conducted by Portsmouth University has shown that of those people claiming to have an allergy or intolerance, only 2 per cent actually did. That means millions of people wrongly think they have a food allergy.
Could this be a combination of two or three decades of wall to fucking wall media beat ups about food allergies combined with obsessive nanny statism insisting labels are stuck to absolutely fucking everything? Or are people just gullible twats?

maybe it's to do with all the toxins, pesticides, herbicidies fungicides, poisons and additives like msg and aspartame now found in our food.

Indeed, or the lack thereof.

In order to develop a tolerance or immunity to something, you generally have to be exposed to it?

It's a shame we humans are such fragile creatures, funny how we've lasted this long tho.
