Food Allergy: I understand your concern Let Wise Person within you ask about the first meal: • Eating foods that upset the digestive system • Allergies to certain foods • Medications • Use of Laxatives “Intermittently rush for a bowel (2-3/week), after 1st meal, no blood, No anemia/weight loss” without abdominal pain are NOT indicative of cancer. Please see your Physician for Diagnosis and Treatment.
