Food Additives are a common cause of food sensitivities and intolerances. Manufactured/processed foods commonly use food additives. The purpose of these food additives is to: preserve, color/dye, flavor, improve food texture, provide longer shelf-life, enhance the appearance and prevent pests from consuming the food.
In those who are overburdened, the immune system becomes provoked and over-reactive to common additives in food. It is typically not ONE factor alone that causes the immune system to go haywire. It is a combination of stress, an imbalance in gut microflora, toxic exposures, underlying infections, to name just a few.
