If you suffer from frequent bouts of diarrhea, or have been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Leaky Gut Syndrome, then this informative book may help you. Having endured dietary problems for many years, Sara Blake wondered if she would ever reach the point of solving these issues sufficiently to stabilize her health. She experimented on herself, supplemented by research on the internet — mostly government and academic websites — and she relied on medical testing to rule out any other causes of her problems. Having finally reached a point where she can now manage her difficulties, she has written this book in the hope of helping others to combat the daily strain that these symptoms place on their lives. If your digestive system does not work and a medical diagnosis suggests that there is nothing wrong with you; if you have been diagnosed with IBS or Leaky Gut Syndrome; if you suffer from diarrhea, but your doctor has ruled out cancer, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD: Colitis and Crohn’s disease) and celiac disease; if food makes you sick and you cannot tolerate foods that others can digest easily; or if you have inadequate stomach acid, bile or digestive enzymes, then Food Intolerance will help you discover what foods you can eat so as to reduce the unpleasant symptoms and ease your daily life. Food Intolerance is dedicated to those who need help with their dietary issues in order that they too, can stabilize their health.

Food Security is a primary concern for all countries. However the vulnerabilities which need addressing are dictated by the individual country according to the food control systems in place, the nature of the food industry and the culture of the country. This book summarises the presentations of a NATO Advanced Training Course addressing the issue of food security in Central Asia. The book is divided into two sections. The first provides an overview of the existing aspects of food security in participating Central Asian countries. The emphasis here is on food safety, control and access and includes background information on the relevant food industries. Participating countries include the Kyrgyz Republic, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. The second section explores particular aspects of food security in participating NATO countries. These provide some insight into the value, strengths and weaknesses of common food security systems. Chapters cover HACCP, ISO/IEC 17025 standards and associated pre-requisite systems, allergies and food intolerances, risk perception and communication, training, and ethics. A chapter on food defence in the USA is also included. This book is suitable for anyone with an interest in food control systems and food security.

Chemical Intolerance identifies phenolic (aromatic) chemical compounds present in natural foodstuffs, pollens, certain food additives, tobacco smoke, perfumes, air pollution, etc., as nonimmunologic, but pharmacologic activators of allergic reactions in chemically intolerant individuals. Biochemical pathway sequences, with supporting scientific literature, are outlined to elucidate the mechanisms associated with formation of inflammatory mediators (prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes) upon activation by phenolic compounds and other chemical stimulants. The role of these inflammatory agents in respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological, cardiovascular, and other disorders is discussed. Treatment modalities using precise dosages of selected phenolic compounds are outlined to provide clinicians with an effective means of therapy. The author also shares his own experience and personal findings based on 20 years of research, including his recommendations for therapy.
