Food intolerance: one of the major health issues


Many people on this earth live for eating and food is their primary love, but sometimes human bodies are not able to keep up with the food that one intake. Most of the times, it is because of the consumption of the food that one is sensitive to. For example, people who are lactose intolerant, if they consume any dairy product, their body can have a negative physical reaction. If larger quantities of the food items which one is intolerant to, is consumed, the conditions can be severe. An uncomfortable feeling after eating a certain food is known as food intolerance.

Many people confuse themselves in between food intolerance and food allergy. Allergy is something which results in a person’s immune system to sit up and take notice while food intolerance has nothing to do with the immune system. Food intolerance describes the adverse physical reaction to the ingestion of certain foods; it is something that affects the digestive system.
