Food Sensitivity

a poorly understood reaction to food affecting veterans and their families exposed to Agent Orange since the increase of genetically modified organisms infiltrated our food supply here in the U.S. beginning in 1996.


Food Sensitivity

A food intolerance, or a food sensitivity occurs when a person has difficulty digesting a particular food. This can lead to symptoms such as intestinal gas, abdominal pain or diarrhea. A food intolerance is sometimes confused with or mislabeled as a food allergy. Food intolerances involve the digestive system. Food allergies involve the immune system. With a food allergy, even a microscopic amount of the food has the potential to lead to a serious or life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis.
