About 10 years ago I had my tonsils removed due to recurring tonsilitis. I was advised by a doctor-friend that it might be from certain foods that I was consuming.
So I went vegetarian one week and gradually started introducing certain meats week by week. It turned out poultry was the cause. Because poultry is in almost everything we consume, I repeatedly kept on getting sick. I made the decision to remove my tonsils after being sick for two years straight. I'm glad I made that decision and I appreciate the doctor-friends who helped me self-research and dig into the issue.
