BEACHIE:Ypu could read this book which would explain all the different ways nuts (and other foods) can cause all kinds of health problems:"FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE: THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICTION AND TREATMENT", Professor Jonathan Brostoff , M.D.. Allergy, Immunology and Environmental Medicine, Kings' College, London http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/089...6487508-3420903 ...or just understand that, especially for people with diarrheic IBS, the abnormal reactions whichh start in the small intestine in response to foods or additives in such patients (abnormal reactions of immune cells which release chemicals which precipitate symptoms) can be the result of a number of different types of reactions which are grouped together generally as "food intolerance" or "sensitivity" reactions seprate and apart from good old fashioned food (nut) "allergy" which involves immunoglobulins.Just as with other food intolerances, nuts are no exception...and one may tolerate one kind of nut and not another...or the intolerance can be dose dependent. A little is not too bad but too much within a given period produces a clinical reaction.So there is really nothing which separates any particualr food when it comes to IBS form another for any specific patient...the body can lose oral tolerance to any food or foods...nothing is excempt except mmmmm
