Chef Allergic to Water
Hotel chef Andy Laughton, of Horsham, West Sussex, UK, had to quit his job after discovering he was allergic to water:
Mr Laughton started getting itchy hands whenever he was working and soon the itching broke into hives.
The five-star hotel chef started using latex gloves - only to discover he was also allergic to the lanoline and nickel used in their manufacture....
He now repairs computers and runs his own company selling fine food to the public from contacts he picked up in the catering trade.
