However, it is what you put in your body that is going to make the biggest difference to your fitness goals. ...Read more

Not all: Some chinese restaurants use msg in their food, which bothers some asthmatics - but not all asthmatics are bothered and many restaurants don't use it anymore.

Whatever term used, your issue with peppers is best treated by avoiding them or eating them in private where people won't notice hiccups ...Read more
