Normal people should be able to enjoy  any food that is fresh, clean and nourishing.Those who have become accustomed, during childhood or adolescence, to turn their noses up and be picky about the usual foods offered in their homes grow up with dislikes for such essentials as milk, butter, eggs and green vegetables, with resultant deficiencies in nutrition and body secretions

The symptoms are loss of appetite, loss of weight, general weakness, fullness after meals,bleaching and heartburn in spite of the fact that they have no acid in their stomachs.Because of the lack of hydrochloric acid, the food ferments easily in the stomach producing heart burn and even painful contractions.
