The investigators reported that household income is associated only with those peanut allergies that develop between ages one and nine, not the ones that occur later in life. The researchers suggested that the "hygiene hypothesis" may explain the higher rates among children from well-to-do families. It holds that exposure to allergens, pathogens and infections, especially in early life, strengthens or programs the immune system in a beneficial way, making it less likely to overreact to typically harmless substances like pollen, pet dander, or peanuts or to attack the body's own tissues.

[ - ] My sister is on her fourth application cycle for med school. How common is this? She got in the first time to one out of the over 50 schools she applied to, but she turned it down because it wasn't as prestigious as other schools she thought she could get into if she reapplied the next year, so she reapplied. The second time she got into zero schools, and the school that had originally accepted her didn't even interview her the second time around. Third cycle (last year) she also got denied everywhere. This is now her fourth cycle. I've heard of people reapplying a second time, but how common is it to apply a third and a fourth time? I admire her dedication, but I feel like if the results were a certain way the second a the third time, they will probably also be the same the fourth time, wouldn't you think? She's spending SO much money reapplying each year, and she's spent the past 3 years doing nothing but focus on applications, hire and MCAT tutor, and take an extra 2 bio classes to boost her application. At what point is following your dream just delusional thinking? I've supported her through all of this, but now she recently told me that if she doesn't get in this cycle, she's going to apply a FIFTH TIME next year. I think after this cycle it's time to call it a day and move on to something else. Would you tell her this, or sit quietly and let her apply a fifth time? 15 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] To the OP of the post about the weekend guests with the peanut allergic child: there is absolutely no way the parents of that child expect you to provide the correct nut-free items. She is being kind and basically telling you not to worry about it. My child has multiple food allergies (including peanut) and I always bring with us (or ship) the specific items that we need. Think about it - if they could only use one specific brand of bread and she expected you to get it, wouldn't she tell you the name? Not all stores carry the same brands. I have to go to several different places to get the specific allergen free items we use. I imagine she does the same. Also, no parent of a food allergic child would blindly place the safety of their child's life in someone else's hands. I assume that she will be inspecting the ingredient list of anything you offer to make sure it is suitable. More than likely, though, she will bring her own things. However, if you feel this uncomfortable with the situation, you should express your concerns to her. She will not be offended. In fact, she will probably feel grateful that you care so much. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

The OP of that post is a snowflake cut from veal. she is going to come completely unglued and undone over this, as evidenced by the continual tearing out of hair despite numerous helpful suggestions. [ Reply | More ]

She's overly worried about coddling her friend's kid. She'd be better off not giving a shit. Or having them shop for their own groceries when they arrive. [ Reply | More ]

So then why didn't peanut mom tell her friend that she would bring food for the boy and not to worry? [ Reply | More ]

My child has allergies and I would never be a guest in someone's home for a full weekend. I would prefer a hotel. Usually Dh or I goes in and does a major wipe down and we keep the environment safe. Then we go meet our friends for short parties and trips to the beach and such. [ Reply | More ]

ita. my dd has a peanut/nut allergy and i know she isn't going to starve wherever we go. she might not get to eat what everyone else is eating but we've always managed. i have no idea why the OP was freaking out over this. parents of allergic kids don't want others to have to worry about this even if they are being kind to host them.

OP of that posts doesn't want to get used when her friend's kid swells up like a toad and keels over on the floor. It's not hard to understand. [ Reply | More ]
