Avoiding gluten? Going for Meatless Mondays? Only organic? No artificial food dyes?
Can we all just agree that sugar, fat, wheat gluten, dairy, meat and salt are poisons that are killing us?
If you read the newspapers, browse the Internet or watch television news, you could very well draw that conclusion. And there are large numbers of people who make the avoidance of one or more of those items a central element of their lives. We are becoming a nation of food tribalists, defined not by where we live or the language we speak, but by what we don’t eat.
Don’t believe me? Try planning a dinner party and ask your guests if they have any food allergies. The tribes will rise up and declare their intolerance for at least one or more of these poisons.
