Some people hold onto it too well and it is too high in them. They
need a LOW sulfur diet.
Others don't hold onto it well enough and they are too low. They need
a HIGH sulfur diet.
The point is that there is no one size fits all prescription as far as
sulfur goes - it has to be based on the specific needs of each
individual. It is just as wrong to prescribe a low sulfur diet for
everyone as to prescribe a high sulfur diet and lots of sulfury
supplements for everyone.

Eggs are also very sulfury, and beans somewhat.
