This Is a Big Fucking Deal

http://www.physorg.com/news186052453.html

My job requires me to enter schools all across New England on a daily basis. I see the "This is a nut-free zone!" signs all over the place. I hear the tales of woe about the lack of homemade baked goods allowed for birthday celebrations because something "may" have touched a peanut.

The rates of food allergies in children increased twofold in a period of 5 years. I've been scratching my head as an armchair scientist wondering WTF is going on. 6 months pregnant and with a pistachio habit that just won't quit, I find myself having little freakouts: "Wait - exposure is GOOD, right? Like allergy shots? Or am I slowly and quietly hurting my baby through snack food?" And of course, no one fucking knows so the children are coddled like precious glass dolls and the parents point fingers and get all self-righteous.

So PLEASE. Read the article and spread around some common sense and knowledge worth having.

Hm. I just posted about this on my blog too, as my daughters' school just went nut-free.

My take on it is that doing what we can to prevent these kids dying of anaphylaxis in their elementary school isn't exactly "coddling them like glass dolls." I don't have a lot of patience with parents who whine about a peanut ban. It just isn't that big a deal, and if it were my kid in that situation, I would hope the community would do what it could for her, too.

Also? It isn't the school's job, or any parent's job except the child's in question, to determine or opine as to whether a kid's allergy is "real" or not. That's between parents and doctors, and at the "nut free zone" end of things, all they can do is work with what they're told.
