 No peanut allergies in Israel - Nope, they’ve got sesame allergies!

OK, found an article on line that says that Israel doesn’t have a peanut allergy problem. They also vaccinate their children. So why no peanut allergies in Israel? I investigated….

Jewish children in London are significantly more likely than those in Israel to develop a peanut allergy, even though they are introduced to peanut products at a later age, which suggests that current prevention guidelines may need to be revised, according to a study published Oct. 30.

The questionnaires revealed that early peanut consumption was more common in Israel. At 9 months of age, 69 percent of Israeli babies had started eating some form of peanuts, whereas only 10 percent of children in Britain had. There was little difference in the age of introduction of the other foods.

Researchers measured the incidence of peanut allergy in 8,600 Jewish school-age children in the United Kingdom and Israel. Prevalence of the allergy in the U.K. was estimated at 1.85% versus 0.17% in Israel. "Actually, peanut is eaten at an earlier age in Israel, lending argument to the idea that perhaps earlier exposure is not a problem," Dr. Sicherer says.

Food allergy is a matter of geography after all: sesame as a major cause of severe IgE-mediated food allergic reactions among infants and young children in Israel.

My conclusion about peanut allergies and Israel. Israel doesn’t have the peanut allergy problem because they manufacture their own vaccines. The country is a major grower of sesame and export sesame oil. Sesame is a major food allergy in Israel. I submit that in Israel they use sesame oil as a carrier in the vaccines that they produce. Found the following on a French website:

The sesame oil used for intramuscular injections, has better physicochemical qualities and is absorbed quickly in comparison with oils of cotton, groundnut and maize. Elle est la moins immunisante et la moins irritante parmi les huiles testées. This immunity is the least irritant and least among the oils tested. Ainsi elle semble être la meilleure huile pour des injections intramusculaires [6]. Thus it seems to be the best oil for intramuscular injections [6]. Elle est présente dans certains produits injectables en particulier les neuroleptiques (annexe 2) [3]. It is present in certain products in particular injectable neuroleptics (Annex 2) [3].

Sesame is the third leading cause of food allergy after the egg and milk and the second leading cause of food anaphylaxis in children of Israel after the milk [9]. Cette anaphylaxie alimentaire touche 37,5 % des enfants ayant une allergie au sésame contre 25 % des enfants allergiques au lait. This food anaphylaxis affects 37.5% of children with an allergy to sesame against 25% of children allergic to milk. La fréquence et la gravité de cette allergie confèrent au sésame le statut de « cacahuète du Moyen- Orient » [9]. The frequency and severity of this allergy to sesame confer the status of peanut in the Middle East "[9]. Une atopie familiale au premier degré est retrouvée dans 28 % des cas et une atopie personnelle chez 35 % des enfants [8].
