Assuming one's digestive tract is in optimum health, is there still possibility for food allergy or is the basic health of the d.t. not totally responsible for screening out bad food particles?

Just as there are no perfect humans, so there is no perfect system in the body. However, the total system is set up to compensate for these imperfections. It is just when that compensation is overwhelmed that conditions like hypersensitivities become inevitable.
Also, we are all born somewher on the Bell Curve of EACH organ system. Some people are so far down on the curve for hypersensitivity that they might develop allergies JUST from the rare peptide that would get through the normal GI wall.
What I try to discuss, here on this bb, are CONCEPTS so that people can begin to understand their own process and start to learn what they can do about THAT.
You remember the old adage that goes somthing like this:
"Give me a fish and I am dependent on you. Teach me to fish & I am free."
Hope this helps. Walt
