          Breakfast consisted of toast with condiments and weetbix with skim milk. I told the lady I was intolerant, and she picked up the milk with the apology 'I'm sorry, but I don't have any soy milk on the trolley. ..' WTF?
          Explained it was wheat I couldn't have, so she picked up the toast with a vague murmur that they didn't have any gf toast, and to make sure my food preferences where on the system, as telling her face to face wasn't sufficient...
          It's been in my notes since May...
          A guy I know was in the hospital for something pretty serious, and it was right there on his chart that he was allergic to eggs. And yet they still tried to feed it to him several times. At one point early on, he was unable to speak, and all he could do was spit it out repeatedly until they stopped trying to shove it into his mouth.

          • OMG!!!!
            I'm watching the telly right now and there is a news article on how it's not fat that makes you fat but bread! (So far so good).
            It's a good article aside from the fact that the man who is presenting it is fat and unhealthy himself

            but the biggest point
            "We now think it's bread that make you fat, because it has lots of starches in it" I literally choked on my tea. and it continues. "We suspect that these starches influences the glucose level in your blood, and that, that is the reason why when lunching with bread you have a afternoon dip."
            (by now I am laughing out loud)
            It continues, "bread influences the blood sugar levels and studies have shown that people who had a stomach reduction surgery aren't craving a lot of food like bread anymore, but we still don't know exactly why?"


            OMG!!! I still wonder how much they are paid by the pharmaceutical industry to appear so stupid on telly!!!
            My story, My thought....

            It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

I add salt (the pink Celtic stuff) to every meal and always have and don't understand why it's feared. People I know who have kids seem to be terrified of their kids ingesting ANY salt. I'm talking to the point of being afraid of salted butter-not advocating covering kids food in salt. My opinion-it's probably partly genetic anyway.
              Wow. Yeah, I've always heavily salted my food and I've never had high blood pressure. My mom always thought I'd get it and freaked out every time I put a lot of salt on something, but my blood pressure has never been anything but totally normal.

              Yah, my ignorance was showing in a couple of places--like I said above, I've never really had a problem with high blood pressure, so I didn't recall all the details.

              • I do have high blood pressure. My doc is paleo/primal friendly but still tells me to watch salt intake and has me on meds. Its genetic in my case.

                • Some people with hypertension are salt sensitive, but it's not very common. Personally, I will liberally salt my home cooked food and it doesn't raise my blood pressure. Sodium on the other hand is a different story. Processed food makes my blood pressure go through the roof!

                    very good point. One reason I have had to stop eating out has to do with this very thing.

                    • I have a friend, very health conscious, who uses only e.v. olive oil and butter as fats, they always get unsalted butter. When I expressed a preference for salted butter they complained about how unhealthy it was compared to unsalted.

                        Yeah, salt does raise your blood pressure, so people with high BP should watch their salt intake (and only them). I never used to salt food when eating conventional foods (and used to lecture my parents about their salt intake), and my BP was 160/100. Now I liberally salt pretty much everything except bacon, and my BP is 110/80.

                        There is a LOT of hidden salt in processed food.

                        • Standing in line at a drugstore today behind a couple: she, snow-white haired hunched over - 80's perhaps; he very tall and younger - maybe son? 60's?
                          and they're buying a cart full of "Nutritional Drinks", (the kind marketed especially towards the elderly as healthy supplements to give them a boost) and he's arguing with the cashier about the price:

                          Cashier: that's $34 please
                          Him (indignant): What?! That's not right! $34 for # packs?
                          Cashier: yes, please, $34
                          Him (loud and rude): No! Did you ring in tax? There's no tax. There's no tax on food!
                          At which point he wheels around to me, angry beady eyes glaring out from bushy waggling eyebrows, and yells!
                          "THERE'S NO TAX ON FOOD! THIS IS FOOD, RIGHT?"
                          Me: ummmm, well sir, ..... technically ...., er, have you ever glanced at the ingredient label?
                          Which earns me a withering stare,
                          and they leave.

                          Price discrepancy - because he didn't factor the bottle return deposit we have here

                          And, just to make the cashier's day as she tells me the total for my packages of feminine protection:
                          Me (with a wink): Oh! Is there tax on this?
                          Which is a rant for a whole 'nother day, but I did make the clerk laugh.

                          Rudeness is never appropriate

                            Like everything else, "reduced salt = reduced BP" is not an easy answer.

                                Makes me wonder... what are you genetically predisposed to eating/avoiding? Can you find those things and improve? That would be a cool experiment.
