fabyomama - Have you ever consulted an allergy specialist? It's pretty obvious your system can't tolerate certain ingredients, and it would be very helpful to you to know exactly what they are.
On the bread subject, I just wish I had the wonderful German & Scandinavian resources here in Oregon (we have many many Swedes here, but they know nothing of bread - all are fast food junkies!) - it's extremely hard to get a decent loaf anywhere except for specialized bakeries (which are very few and far between). Since I've moved out of Bread City (San Francisco) it's been hell!

Funny you should ask as I'm actually going for a blood test tomorrow morning to check for diabetes (and cholesterol). I'll ask the nurse about it.
I'd always put it down to not eating crap food for so long that my body just isn't used to it anymore - but we'll see. Thanks.
I know people in their 80's that travel globally and eat nowt but garbage all over the world - and are doing fine. I've met others that are in their 20's and very cautious, who have drank a glass of tap water and zonked.
Sod's law - I think they call it.
Back in Canada, I NEVER go to Mickey D's (there are so many better burger places) but on the road, it's a kind of comfort food: safe, familiar, and I know what I'm eating (sort-of). And they usually have clean washrooms, which can be a rarity in Asia. Also, I don't know how many times I've ordered something in a restaurant, open-mindedly, only to find it inedible and not at all what I was expecting (mmm... pig knuckles and chicken heads!) So I end up wasting $20-$30, then going to McDonald's or KFC afterwards, just to fill up. Many visitors to China, when they first arrive, are very purist, and insist THEY will never eat fast food. Then a few weeks later I run into them at McDonald's, chowing down on a Big Mac and fries!
