She had even asked her doctor to change to a gluten free diet (it's a start) and that she wanted to do a sugar free diet as well.
    her doctor actually forbid her to do that!!
    I asked her why.
    Her doctor had said: "there is no use in changing your diet while your body is still adjusting to the medication. We need to let the meds do their job first before looking elsewhere."

    *facepalm*!!!!!!
    I have RA and take Methotrexate and Humira.
    I started Paleo in Jan and in the spring began lowering my medications. I now take half the Methotrexate and have gone from every 2 weeks to every 3 weeks on the Humira.
    My Rheumatologist (who is older than dirt and quite old school) said "what ever you're doing keep doing, I consider you in remission". So meds gave me my life back and nutrition put me in remission!
    Please have you BF encourage his cousin to find a Rheumy who is more open!! Feel free to share my story.
    *Cranky*. Man it ticks me off when Rheumys won't look at nutrition

Ugh.
    Last time I was at the supermarket I noticed that the tins of tuna have a warning that they 'may contain fish'. I should bloody well hope so!!

    I think my favorite is the carton of eggs that says "May contain eggs." well, what the hell else would be in it?
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    Picked up a packet of gummy candies for a possible indulgence; immediately put it down because the first ingredient is "glucose syrup (wheat)" along with 50 other ingredients.

    Oops.

    That said, I am not sure why you would need three different types of oil in a cupcake unless one was used in the frosting and the other in the cake? Or perhaps different cakes were frosted/made differently? Sounds odd. I'd call them up and ask because a well-made cake is a fantastic thing (yeah, not a fantastic primal thing but I'll get over it the couple of times a year I eat cake.)
    I'm guessing that the three different flavors are made with different oils... But, I checked the package again and saw that they were 3 months past their expiration date... thanks, coworker.

    I was just a bit annoyed by the "may contain eggs" statement because no matter how many times I checked, I couldn't find eggs in the ingredient list.

    Another CW moment

    Milka muffins. That's all I'm gonna say.

    Seriously, people. Milka muffins. Ugh.

    Well, it is a legal disclaimer so people with allergies can't sue. You can't bring a products liabilities case and claim you didn't know bc you didn't read (contributory negligence or causation). If it was processed in a facility that also produced on other products with eggs, it will disclaim eggs.

    Pretty sure that's not going to make much difference to anything.
