So she substitutes almonds for peanuts?  I thought that people with peanut allergies were likely to have tree nut allergies as well, no?

I don't. I have zero issues with almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, chestnuts, filberts (aka hazelnuts), macadamia nuts, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios, and walnuts.

However, I didn't develop my peanut allergy until I was 16 years old, so I don't know if that makes a difference or not.

Apparently, peanut allergy isn't actually an allergy to peanuts themselves but to a fungus that's endemic on them, so it's entirely plausible that allergies to tree nuts would be independent.

Ah.

Actually, I have always wondered why the two would be linked, sine they're not botanically related.

Peanuts are not nuts. They are legumes. I am allergic to almonds. I have no problems.

No problems with peanuts, that is.

/Really tired.

They're not peas, either.

Sometimes my peanut has three nuts.

If she's swallowed the sausage, she's welcome to the nuts.

every newborn should be fed formula that contains traces of nuts, shellfish, dust, gluten, pollen, latex, and cat saliva.

most babies will simply have a headstart on a normal immune system

any babies who show a reaction need to be sterilised so that the weak trait stops being passed on

same for caesarian births -- all babies delivered by c-section need to be sterilised, otherwise, more and more future childbirths will need to be c-section by default due to inherited weakness

What?

Can you please give me a citation, because I'm pretty sure Propofol doesn't have any kind of fungus in it, but it's contraindicated in people with peanut or soy allergies.

That is dangerous thinking there, citizen.

I've heard this too, along with an explanation of the fungus being the reason you don't give them to parrots and that properly shelled and "treated" peanuts wouldn't cause a reaction. I never was tempted to try this out on someone to check its veracity though.

/family has very few if any allergies. The only things I really have to watch out for are some no-name vitamins, certain medical bandage tapes, and green bell peppers.
