There is so much incorrect information in this thread I am going to just post this once and avoid replying to all the trolls.

My allergist, Dr Alan Lieberman of COEM, 7510 Northforest Drive, North Charleston, SC 29420, has had at least one patient who would literally convulse immediately if someone opened a jar of peanut butter in the same room.  No mention of anaphylaxis was made,  but that is a pretty large and immediate reaction to an air-borne allergen that is undeniably considered by most to be actual food.

As well, this man has quite literally saved my life, as I have a shellfish allergy so severe that I do, and have, head down the path to full anaphylactic shock merely from being in the same room with, or downwind of, either raw or cooked shellfish of any genus.  It started with shrimp and has gotten progressively worse.  Alan mapped this allergy for me and helped me to understand the full implications of it's effect on my life and I am still alive and fully functional because of this understanding.

I am quite aware that many, if not most, allergy whiners are quite likely attention whores who should just farking get on with their life.  I have simply gotten on with it, and I only mention my condition in the process of attempting to be functional and Get Through My Day while avoiding the annoyance of sickness or dying.

I am not going to post the 1/2-inch thick documentation that I have on file, nor bother replying to the naysayers that will inevitably pop up.  You can take my (and Alan's) word for it or not, but one can have very severe reactions including full anaphylaxis to air-borne allergens, including food.  Anyone saying differently is disingenuous at best.

HindiDiscoMonster: People, the tit was made for a reason... use it with your babies, not a damn bottle... allergy issue gone.


Some people can't breastfeed. I tried to breastfeed my first son. My nipples cracked and started bleeding. By the time they were better my breasts became so engorged with milk they were hard as a rock the doctor couldn't even pump the milk. He had to bind my breasts to make the milk go away. The pain was awful. I ended up having to bottle feed my son. Don't be a dick.

And inhalation of particulates doesn't cause an allergic reaction?

I'll just go tell the cedar pollen to fark off then.

Is cedar pollen food?

Can peanut particulates be inhaled?

If they're in a facility that grinds peanuts? Possibly.
If they're in a lunchroom, no.

Either way, inhalation goes to the lungs, not the stomach, so it's not going to trigger the allergy.

Wrong sir. any area containing a mucosa  can absorb particulates. Thy do you think pollen allergy reactions happen.

hailin: What the hell is wrong with kids these days? Seriously are more and more people just becoming shiatty parents? I had a food allergy as a kid, so whenever people brought birthday snacks in the parents would make sure to include a variety so I could have something. If they couldn't (like the brought in a cake) they would just call my mom and she would send me in with a snack. My classmates also took care to make sure I avoided any foods that would trigger my allergies. It wasn't a big deal though and my allergy wasn't banned from the school. We also grew up with a kid who stuttered and someone with diabetes, but none of us were bullied because of it. Maybe I grew up in some sort of Stepford community, but it just wasn't a big deal back then.


No, you were just born before everyone became a douchenozzle.

teylix: good. weed out the inferior genes.

live without peanut butter isn't a life worth living anyhow.


Allergies may or may not be the result of genes.  Scientists continue to argue about the cause of higher allergy rates in children.  I like the theory that we are too clean.  Our immune systems don't get attacked as much so they lock onto something that may not be as harmful such as peanuts or shellfish.

Uh, I'm allergic to soft shell ... but you don't see me going to Red Lobster and then biatching because my throat swells up inside.  If your crotch fruit is that deathly allergic to foods that they cannot be in the same vicinity as them, you either need to wrap them in a cellophane bubble (where, hopefully, they suffocate) or you need to home school them because they truly need to live sheltered lives. 

However, if your allergy prevents me from bringing food on a plane, or giving my kid a PB&J sandwich at lunch, or having to throw away anything that slightly resembles the food allergies because your kid is coming over, THAT'S where I draw the line.

Don't purposely inconvenience others because you have a genetic mutant who, by nature, should die off.

I'm not aware of any cases of anaphylaxis resulting from cutaneous exposure.  Hand-to-mouth I'll buy, but hand-to-eye or skin should just result in local swelling if anything.  Hives from cutaneous allergen exposure aren't dangerous, just itchy.

Aerosolized food reactions result in reactions similar to inhalant allergens.  There is not enough systemic absorption to cause anaphylaxis, nor should they cause throat swelling.

Children do not actually have any [legal] rights. Even for adults there is no actual "right to experience society".

And the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few... or the one. There is absolutely no reason to force restrictions on an entire classroom or lunchroom because Alice Allergy is genetically inferior challenged.

I sincerely hope those of you describing children with food allergies in such negative terms never have to experience the worry my wife and I feel when we send our child to school. She's very young and we're teaching her about her peanut allergy, but right now she is at the mercy of the staff at her school. Thankfully they are very professional about it and understand the risks she faces everyday.

Doesn't have to be anaphylaxis, the fact that it causes the victim discomfort and poses a threat, especially to the very young or weak, is enough to grind my gears.  If I was 100% immune to the effects of poison ivy, could even eat it raw, and randomly rubbed it on people whom I knew were going to be injured, the authorities would put me away.

In which case I honestly have to wonder - perhaps it's actually COUNTERPRODUCTIVE to do the sort of "tell everyone in the class about little Jayden's peanut allergy so that everyone can be careful" type messages?

Seems it would be better to tell the teacher (so she can keep an eye out for both accidental ingestion and any bullying issues) and definitely propagandize the HELL out of little Jayden himself ("don't you ever eat anything at all whatever ever ever ever unless you know exactly where it's from, and that means from Mom only until you're older") - but NOT tell any classmates.

Most people would not think to tease anyone with peanut butter or milk or anything else if they don't already know in advance the kid has allergies.  If offered some peanut food, the kid can just say he doesn't like the stuff or just doesn't want any, no thanks.

I don't have any food allergies, but I do have a simple phobia (phobia of an object) of something so ordinary that it's all around, common, but no one in a million years would ever suspect someone would have a phobia of it.  Think "cotton balls" - only it's something else similarly innocuous.  Yeah, it's stupid, because these things aren't rational at all.  It's lizard brain territory.

As a small child, unfortunately I learned what happens if you confide this deep secret to someone who you eventually have a falling out with.  Not good.  Luckily for me we randomly moved for completely unrelated reasons, and you better believe I have never shared that secret with anyone else again.

Thing is, most people would never think to force someone to eat at item (or touch an item, in the phobia case) unless they already know it's a problem for the victim. It just doesn't cross anyone's mind.

Perhaps peanut allergies are so common now that kids might try it randomly just to see if they can get a rise out of some random kid, but it seems to me that the kid would be safer from any bullying if he keeps his allergies a secret.

I mean, why let potential enemies know what your own personal kryptonite is?

CorruptDB: mikefinch: There is a difference between bullying and out and out assault.

That being said if i saw some kid switch allergens into the lunch of a kid they knew had deadly allergies i would drag them by their hair into the office and call the cops.

Drag them by the hair, huh?  Just because you are bigger than them?  I'm sure using violence to stop the bully from bullying will teach them a lesson!


but their not bullies -- their psychopathic animals with no sense of empathy. They are inhuman. Poisoning someone is not bullying. Its being a psycho.
