1 I think the reason there are so many allergies and illnesses is because people began to sanitize everything babies use, which in turn prevents a baby's immune system from developing. Obviously, you don't want a baby to drink from a filthy bottle, but if they're not exposed to germs at a young age, their immune system will never learn how to deal with them. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 12, 2010, 1:01 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Speaking of those busy Aggie researchers, I saw this on the news a couple of days ago... http://www.foodnavigator.com/Science-Nutrition/Polyphenols-could-lead-to-allergen-free-peanut-butter-Study Ask and you shall receive. Man calling himself "baldrick" wins $50 million lottery jackpot... See you in the papers! -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on June 11, 2010, 11:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Pelirojo, I was merely describing a current state of affairs not endorsing a particular action. People need to reclaim ultimate responsibility for their own specialized needs though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Severe_combined_immunodeficiency Kids are commonly forbidden to bring any peanut butter to school and, in some day care situations, parents must sign a pledge that their kids must be nut-free at home too in case any traces should remain. It's not labeling that concerns me, the more info the better, rather it's a strategy which would seem to have only dire counter-evolutionary results. A similar misguided strategy may be connected to the dramatic rise in childhood asthma rates, but, let's not digress. The world is a difficult environment and is not getting easier. To foster a fatal weakness into future generations is a poor tactic. Better to figure out how to switch off that gene in ourselves or to take the specific toxin out of the peanut crop. I'm sure there's an Aggie working on this in a university lab right now. Treating peanut butter as if it's the new Sarin is just crazy. An unscientific internet check shows that more people are at severe risk from bee stings (2%) than peanuts (0.4-0.6%), yet, bee-allergic people just tend to keep an EpiPen handy and try to avoid bees. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 24, 2010, 3:22 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 baldrick, Am I reading you correctly in that you think we should isolate those with peanut allergies? Even if one doesn't care that it would be exceedingly punitive to folks who didn't ask to have that reaction, how difficult would implementing that proposed solution be compared to merely continuing to print a 'this product may contain peanuts' label on packages for consumers to make the decisions for themselves about whether they want to eat something with peanuts or serve it to friends/family who may have the allergies? If you don't want to have kids with peanut allergies ask your intended to take an allergen test before having sex with them if you like but isolating folks as though they comitted a heinous crime seems a bit extreme and quite the opposite of any freedom of choice! Thankfully, I don't have that condition but if I knew someone I cared about had it, I'd be sure to check the labels before I served them anything I knew could trigger possibly fatal reactions. Personally, I think for the sake of those who suffer the allergies (rather than those who consider it annoying to read the packaging labels), peanut allergies boned Day One. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on May 23, 2010, 5:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 In order to try and defend those unfortunates born with a hyper-allergy to such a mild toxin as that found in the peanut legume, our modern culture has, in effect, placed the rest of the gene pool into a anti-nut bubble rather than socially isolating the at-risk individuals. The inevitable effect of this policy will be to foster this genetic vulnerability in the general population. Many of the foods we consume as adults are mildly toxic in some regard - coffee, tea, certain herbs, alcohol etc are used specifically for their mildly toxic effects. Other stuff like raw milk or honey or the way we choose to prepare certain dishes make them slightly risky from a hygiene angle in favor of preserving the purity of the taste or eating enjoyment. We should preserve the idea of Choice in what we eat. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 22, 2010, 10:23 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 It's gotten ridiculous about allergies to certain foods, especially peanuts. I daresay it's more like the mass media has turned the general populace into a bunch of thin-skinned paranoid hypochondriacs over everything. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on May 21, 2010, 2:03 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote

8 It's getting ridiculous. Parents are trying to make rules that no one in schools can have peanuts. Had my elementary school did that, I would've starved without my peanut butter sandwich. (Wouldn't a kid who's allergic know not to eat that?) -- Submitted By: (Melissa) on December 7, 2009, 5:05 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
