    One thought on “The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What's Causing It and How to Stop It”

    1. The author is a historian (NOT a scientist) who gave birth to a child with a peanut allergy. Her attempt to discover the cause of the recent increase in food allergies led her to the anti vaccine movement and the classic blunder: confusing correlation and causation.This book is packed full of dangerous misinformation which links vaccination programs with the rise in food allergies. Fraser blames immunizations, which reduced mortality rates and allowed children to live long enough to develop food [...]

    2. Having 2 kids with food allergies, like the author I also wonder what happened to increase the prevalence of food allergies today. The history of vaccinations & use of peanut oil was fascinating to me. I'm not sure I would make the leap that it's the sole cause of allergies, but it certainly pointed to a potential problem with the accelerated use of combo vaccines starting at 2 months, along with a goverment push to have all preschoolers vaccinated around 1990 instead of waiting for school a [...]

    3. Have you ever wondered WHY there are so many kids with peanut allergies these days? Heather Fraser did after her child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter.I’ve heard that a worried mom with a sick kid does better research than the FBI, and this book proves that point.Why Is That?Ms. Fraser quickly points out that peanut allergy used to be a concern only for Western countries – why is that?I interviewed her about this, and you can sign up for the replay here: xn123fusionsoft/app/for [...]

    4. I bought this book hoping to find some relevant information because my grandson has an allergy to peanuts--nine years old and, despite extreme vigilance, has had three major reactions which warranted terrifying trips to the ER. He carries an epi-pen and will not eat at birthday parties, questions waitstaff and even chefs in restaurants, with good reason. He is a nine-year-old expert on reading product descriptions on food labels.Frankly, I am no scientists but this book has all the earmarks of a [...]

    5. THis is one of the most informative, fact based, quick paced, amazing books on historical medicine of the last 200 years that I have ever read. I have read many books on epidemics, autoimmune disorders, history of different communicable and non-communicable diseases, vaccine science, the immune system, and studied medical sociology and this is one of the best books there is. It is not that long either, was a breeze to get through.

    6. Made me thinkI've always been pro-vaccination. I've lost count of how many injections I've received in my life beginning with the childhood shots (penicilan, tetanus, DPT, polio, smallpox, along with all the required "booster shots") followed by shots courtesy of he US Army (yellow fever, plague, and a host of rare tropical diseases), through old age (shingles, pneumonia, influenza). I guess I'm just one of those lucky people who never got a severe reaction. After reading Dr. Fraser's book, I fe [...]

    7. With the growing number of food intolerances and allergies, schools and day care centers respond by restricting the foods deemed responsible, such as peanut products and in some cases dairy products. Rarely is it considered that the injection of peanut oil, and dairy derivatives (lactose, bovine casein and lactalbumins) via vaccines, as probable causes. Some of the vaccines that use or contain the above ingredients include BCG, Hib, influenza, Meningococcal, MMR and Polio. When the above food in [...]

    8. My 18mo old was recently diagnosed with a peanut allergy. No one in our families have this allergy, so I read this book to learn more and to hopefully figure out where this came from. This is a science book, so it was very dry. Like drier than some of my text books in college (I was a bio major). But it was interesting. And i have to give major kudos to the author for all her extended research. I admit i did lose interest toward the end and just skimmed the last two chapters. I found the history [...]

    9. An indepth look at the history and science of food allergies and an analytical approach to determining the cause thereof. Enlightening to say the least! Repetitive in parts, and although the author works very hard to be thorough, some important elements of the equation are missing in the discussion.

    10. Probably one of the best Vaccine books I have read. The title is deceiving making you think it's all about peanut allergy which it is but the author goes through painstaking detail of how allergies came about. Highly recommend for anyone who is thinking to choose whether or not to vaccinate.
