It's more than that. It's not just food hysteria, there are people who do get incredibly sick from certain foods. Peanut allergies, anyone? These people don't imagine swelling up and clogging their wind pipes.
Until recently, this kind of sickness was unheard of in Europe. There was no such thing as a peanut allergy. Now we got that, too.
We get sicker and sicker. And I wonder why. What is it that lets our bodies go apeshit over food?
