Some of the food triggers for migraine headache are red wine,
MSG, aged cheese, and a few smoked foods. Triggers for RSI and
for gout may be similar, including bread, pizza dough, champagne,
beer, chocolate, and red meat. At least one doctor of traditional

food, cold drinks, duck, beans, peas, and nuts. [Richard Donkin
