Natural And Artificial Food Chemicals 0

Most foods fall into categories due to their chemical content, whether natural or artificial. Many people find it hard to believe that natural chemicals found in fruits and vegetables and other foods important for good health could be a problem. It is true. Since the 1960’s people such as Dr Feingold www.feingold.org, and others such as Dr Anne Swain and colleagues at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney www.sswahs.nsw.gov.au/rpa/allergy have been researching the effects of such chemicals on a whole range of symptoms such as irritable bowel symptoms, mood and behaviour changes.
