The full report can be seen at www.allergyuk.org under “Stolen Lives 3″. A startling statistic was that 67% stated that their GP did not understand their food problems. Recent media and government research into the causes of obesity have shown that there has been a dramatic increase in the last 30 years in the consumption of junk food and refined foods.
