the effect of certain foods
Why is it that I can poo regularly all week, feel fine, and then within a couple of hours of eating my dad's home fried chips (in canola oil) I suddenly breakout in painful cramps and massive, sweaty, feel-like-you-wanna-throw-up poops?
Dr. Adams responds:
To be honest with you, I really do not know what this happens to you. I would guess that it is related to either the oil or another ingredient that your dad is using to make these chips. But lets use a bit of common sense here. You have identified the food source that causes all of your pain and discomfort. So the obvious tactic here is to STOP eating this food source. It really is that simple. Don't you think?
