Food intolerance 'imagined'

19th September 2007

A poll has suggested that millions of people in the UK have self-diagnosed a food intolerance and may be avoiding key foods as a result.

But fewer than a quarter of the 12m people who claim to be food intolerant have had their condition formally diagnosed.

Almost 40% of the 1,500 people polled by Yorktest thought it trendy to be intolerant of food and many blamed celebrities such as actress Rachel Weisz who has a well-publicised wheat intolerance. The range of foods people declared themselves intolerant of was diverse ranging from grapefruit to sushi.
