I will treat myself to chocolate if South Africa wins Rugby World Cup’ Monday 15 October 2007 PDF Print It had an adverse effect on her health, but South African born Shelley-Anne Berry, will treat herself to some chocolate ice-cream if her home country wins this weekend’s Rugby World Cup. That, despite the fact that it makes her sneeze. Shelley-Anne, who lives in the UK and married to an England supporting husband, will cheer on the Springboks, knowing exactly what a bar of chocolate, or some ice cream, could do. A lifelong sneezer, the 39-year old tax consultant, had been trying to overcome her condition for years through the NHS, but only when she chanced on a food intolerance test, did her sneezing go away. “Yorktest.com identified what foods I couldn’t eat and as soon as I implemented the diet, the sneezing went away. Before taking the test, I was eating a Snickers bar every other day and maybe some chocolate ice cream after dinner. When I got the results from Yorktest.com, I hated it. No chocolate. It was horrible. I had sneezed for most of my life but it stopped when I put into practise what the test revealed”, says Shelley. Despite being National Chocolate Week (15th – 21st October), in turn, encouraging consumers to eat more of the product, Shelley had to cut the food out of her diet for health reasons. The annual UK turnover for chocolate is £3 billion and the average weekly spend is £1.33 per person. Research has suggested that dark chocolate could help prevent heart disease yet, calorific and high in fat and sugar, it is obvious that chocolate isn’t healthy for everyone. If like Shelley, you suffer adverse reactions to food, then it is best to have a test so you can discover exactly what foods are possibly causing the symptoms. With just 1% of people testing positive to cocoa bean, it would be impossible to pinpoint foods via a laborious food elimination process. Finally, with the prospect of a night of sporting history for South Africa, a celebratory spoon of chocolate ice cream, will toast in a new four-year reign as Rugby World Champions, and definitely worth a sneeze or two. -END- Notes for editors: SHELLEY-ANNE BERRY TOOK A 113 FOODSCAN FROM YORKTEST.COM WHICH IDENTIFIES YOUR BLOOD AGAINST 113 COMMONLY EATEN FOODS.
