Re: “Fake food allergies on the rise

This article is completely glossing over the point of making special requests or avoiding certain foods. Just because eating something your body can't handle doesn't kill you doesn't mean that you should therefore spend hours or days in extreme discomfort because, due to a technicality in your reaction, you are not 'allergic.' Telling a stranger you're 'intolerant' to certain foods makes it sound like you're some sort of food bigot, and it generally isn't considered polite to go into detail about what happens to your bowels and the nearest bathroom when you eat X. So yes, we DO say we have a food allergy. It gets the point across the fastest. I can't eat X. Please don't serve it to me.
