Thinking outside the box - more on peanut allergies

More on peanut allergies. If you read what the experts say about it:

Peanut allergy is common and often appears in the first years of life.


Peanut allergy occurs when your immune system develops allergy-type antibodies to peanut proteins. Your immune system mistakenly identifies the proteins as something harmful. The next time you come in contact with peanuts, these antibodies recognize it and signal your immune system to release chemicals such as histamine into your bloodstream, which leads to the signs and symptoms of an allergic response. Scientists aren’t sure why some people become allergic to peanuts and others don’t.

Exposure to peanuts can occur in three ways:

Direct contact. The most common cause of peanut allergy is eating peanuts or peanut-containing foods. Sometimes direct skin contact with peanuts can trigger an allergic reaction.

Cross-contact. This is the unintended introduction of peanuts into a product. It’s generally the result of exposure to peanuts during processing or handling of a food product.

Inhalation. An allergic reaction may occur if you inhale dust or aerosols containing peanuts, such as that of peanut flour or peanut oil cooking spray.

  OK, this is interesting. We don’t have preschool children sniffing peanuts. So that leaves cross-contact and direct contact. Yeah, peanut products are used in baby lotion but alot of parents don’t use baby lotion. And usually it is peanut oil which is really processed alot. So really direct contact of eating peanuts in some form for breastfed babies isn’t likely. And I don’t buy into that the peanut protein got into the mother’s milk. That a major stretch. If that was the case, fatal peanut allergies would have been prevalent for centuries. Don’t think so. So that leaves only one possibility - Cross-contact.

That is it. But not quite accidental.

When you culture the bacteria and viruses to make vaccines and medications, you have to feed them something. Peanut meal (after the oil is removed) is cheap. Mix it up into a slurry and mix the bacteria or viruses with it. The bacteria eat the peanut meal. Now it is time to make the medicine. How do you separate the bacteria from the peanut meal? Maybe you rinse them and put it through a process that separates them by size or something. Use centrifugal force. But what if you miss a few little bitty pieces of peanuts?

Or maybe you do a really good job and you do only get the bacteria and none of the peanut slurry. But what about the bacteria that just ate a peanut molecule? It’s not digested yet. It is still in the bacteria. Unless you superclean the bacteria and eliminate peanuts from their diet or starve them for a bit so all the peanut food is eaten and totally digested, the bacteria that you make your vaccine from is going to be contaminated with peanuts.

Look at this:

The age at which children first show allergies to peanuts is getting younger and is now between 14 and 18 months, which may indicate that more infants are being exposed to allergy-producing substances early in life…

  Well, if you look at the vaccination schedule, it is pretty clear that the number of vaccinations for babies has increased substantially. There is a connection...


According to Geier, 79 percent of all infant deaths under one year of age occur within 28 days of vaccination. Similarly, 71 percent of encephalopathy in infants under one occurs within 28 days of vaccination–as does 92 percent of reported febrile convulsions, 88 percent of nonfebrile convulsions, 66 percent of SIDS, and 99 percent of other neurological symptoms.

Why do some children react to vaccine while others do not? Geier and others suggested that there can be multiple causes of neurological and immunological reactions. Certain genotypes may be involved. Whole-cell vaccines can be more reactive than accellular vaccines. Moreover, the culture medium for the vaccines as well as numerous additives can cause allergic reactions. Some lots of vaccines may contain more toxins.

  The culture medium can be peanut meal....?

Egg allergy is one of the most common food allergies in infants and young children. The great majority is not life-threatening and management involves exclusion of egg from the diet and regular review with the expectation that the majority of children will outgrow the allergy by school age. Judgment is required as to when the dietary elimination of egg is no longer required. This decision may be helped by demonstrating loss of sensitivity by skin prick or specific IgE testing and in some cases a supervised food challenge. Particular issues in management arise with more severe, potentially life-threatening reactions, with immunization with vaccines prepared in eggs, with the diagnosis of egg hypersensitivity as a cause of delayed exacerbations of eczema which can be non-IgE mediated, and in deciding whether a child can be allowed to ingest small amounts of cooked egg through egg-containing foods while continuing to avoid raw egg or larger amounts of whole egg.;jsessionid=JmDRJK9TY8YcyPJ2KmnKxs1XYhnwsy6rwXJK6mT9mDhp8vvKHQ6m!-482373940!181195629!8091!-1

  Substitute “peanut” for “egg” in the above and you have a clear idea of what is happening.

On January 11, 2006, my daughter received DTaP, Hib, Polio, MMR and PCV. Within days or weeks (I didn’t record the first occurrence because I thought the marks were from her scratching her face with her spoon) she began breaking out in hives on her face whenever she ate peas (a member of the legume family). We also began to notice that she developed an intolerance to dairy (though this has gone away - by 16 months). Then on March 2, 2006, less than 2 months after her 12-month immunizations, she had an anaphlyactic reaction to one bite of peanut butter toast. I didn’t realize it was an anaphylactic reaction at the time.

  Look at the number of vaccines this poor kid got all at once! I’m appalled, frankly. Cause and effect is pretty clear to me.

My ds2 started breaking out 10 days after his 2 month vaxes–no signs of allergies before that. His known allergies are dairy, soy, egg, corn, peanut, treenut, wheat, bananas and avocados and latex, mustard, sesame, coconut, buckwheat, barley, quinoa, and most fruit and veggies. He did not gain any weight for FIVE months. NOTHING!!! His eczema was so bad that he scratched out all of his hair and left skin behind every morning. There are so many potential allergens in those vaxes–including lactose–injected into our children, whose immune systems are still immature. Those same pediatricians who insist on vaxing also should be telling us, per AAP guidelines, to avoid solids until at least 6 months and then to avoid dairy until 12 months, in part to avoid sensitizing an immature immune system.

My child is now anaphylactic on contact to dairy. He could die if one drop of milk touched his arm. Don’t ever discount the effect of allergies–our entire life has changed. Thimerasol aside, vaxes inject too much crap into our children. .

  And what else is fed to the bacteria in the culture…. dairy, soy, egg, corn… who knows what else?

Isn’t that interesting that peanut allergy is common and often appears in the first years of life. The first years of life? Did you ever feed your infant peanut butter sandwiches or use peanut oil cooking spray around your infant? How is it possible for a very young child to get the allergy?

As your read here and in my previous blog, it is simple. Peanuts are in the vaccinations, medications, formula, and vitamins that we give our children.
