This article reviews the importance of food and water for survival and the wide ranges of nutrient intake capable of sustaining reproduction and growth. It also reviews the different types of adverse reactions to foods including hypersensitivity or allergic reactions, pharmacologic and metabolic adverse responses to foods, and natural and industrial toxins in the food chains. The article concludes with recommendations for dealing with patients who advocate the use of "natural" foods and products.
