2 Pelirojo I wasn't dissing anyone who suffers from food allergies. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on April 25, 2012, 11:44 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Stephanie, While I agree that hypochondria re so many physical and mental health issues is encouraged more than ever, there are folks who DO genuinely have the condition of food allergies so let's not dis actual sufferers. If I know someone's allergic to something, a momentary inconvenience on my part of finding safe,edible substitutes is worth ensuring their continued good health- not to mention good manners. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 14, 2012, 3:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I notice that. Everything "gluten free" flaunts it in big red letters. What's with the sudden gluten allergy epidemic? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on April 12, 2012, 1:30 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The "thing" now is to have a gluten allergy (which is an oxymoron in and of itself - there's no such thing - it's called Celiac Disease.) but to have to shop organic only. I think it's a trend created by the organic grocers! -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on April 11, 2012, 3:33 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

8 When I was a kid, I knew of maybe two people that had severe food allergies. Now there are dozens of people I know that have them. I think some of these are bull. Uh oh I got a little stomach ache eating cheese, can't ever eat dairy again. I understand some people have them, but most cases I think are blown way out of proportion. Also, I think some parents use the excuse to raise their kids to follow their own weird dietrey beliefs, which I think is similar to child abuse by denying them important nutreients. I was raised eat whatever a host puts in front of you even if you don't like it. Now when hosting a dinner party people are like "I won't eat meat, I can't eat gluten, I can't eat dairy, etc." and more times than not it comes off completely rude. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on December 24, 2011, 12:35 pm - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
9 There's plenty of research that shows avoiding allergens at an early age just makes things WORSE and that acclamation to potential allergens makes kids stronger when they grow up. So these hysterical parents have probably harmed not only their own kids, but all the other kids at school forced to go peanut-free. That would explain the sudden onset of allergy-fragile children, and the curious absence of such allergies in other countries. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on December 23, 2011, 8:16 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 This is something I haven't fully understood why it's become so prevalent. While I remember, some people did have allergies, to pretty much anything. I don't remember specific, singling out of particular foods, such as PB. That was probably %60 of what I ate in Elementary and middle school. Oh who am I kidding, I still enjoy a good PB&J sandwich. This was like my bologna (as i HATE bologna.) Anyway, from what I've heard, just the scent of peanut in the air can cause the allergic problems. I don't know if I buy that one, if someone happens to be allergic to peanuts, I'd like know exactly how the scent 3 ft away effects them. I will say I feel more sympathetic towards people allergic to water. That would suck A$$. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on December 23, 2011, 12:12 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 It's not that people think they're allergic to foods, from what I understand, a lot more people are having serious reactions to foods. For example how often do you hear a story that goes like the following, "When I was in school, you maybe had 2 people that had a serious peanut allergy. Everyone knew who they were. They and the school made sure to have emergency medication with them at all times in case something happened. That was only 10 years ago. Now, half the school is this allergic. It's to the point where they don't allow anything with peanuts." Something is going on. To use one example, if game comes out and out of thousands of players, only a small percent are having trouble getting the game to work, it may be a hardware or software configuration that might be rare and is causing trouble. When the game doesn't run for more then half the players, something is going on. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on September 21, 2009, 4:09 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I agree, MCS. Why is food suddenly deadly? For years, people ate food and all of a sudden, these allergies are springing up like weeds. To the people who think they have allergies: Allergies are when your body's immune system overreacts to foods, not necessarily when you get indigestion, etc. from certain foods (for example, if you get indigestion from milk, it could be lactose intolerance, which is the inability to digest lactose, not an allergy). It would really suck to suddenly be allergic to the foods you love. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on September 21, 2009, 12:01 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Since when did food become this major killer? I know that there are genuine cases, but it seems hard to believe so many people have them all of a sudden. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on September 20, 2009, 4:43 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
