Reviews about The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What's Causing It and How to Stop It (7):

Peanut allergies did not exist a century ago. Heather Frasier exposes the reason why they occur today in one in fifty American children. Many vaccine use peanut oil as an adjuvant. When a study was done on this practice was done in the early '70s, Congress' response was to pass a law in 1973 permitting vaccine companies to not put "inactive" ingredients on the vaccine packages, calling their formulas secret and proprietary, never mind that they were killing and disabling many thousands. The peanut oil in vaccines sensitizes many to peanut protein, resulting in peanut allergies on later exposure to peanuts, with sometimes fatal results. Frasier includes statistics on exactly how quickly peanut allergies in the US exploded: in the wake of the Hib vaccine being put on the universal vaccine schedule in 1987, the incidence of peanut allergy increased three times in only three years. This is an aside, no included in this book: Israel has very few peanut allergies, because the vaccines manufactured there do not use peanut oil, but rather sesame oil, so they have a lot of sesame allergies in their children. This is an extremely detailed, well-researched book that all parents should read, and gives us yet another reason to just say no to vaccines. (My daughter reacted to the hep-B vax at birth, given without permission, with encephalitis, to the DTaP at 18 months with having her only two words erased, and was diagnosed with autism two months later. She got pertussis at 8 months after having had three DTaPs, but caught the disease anyway, because the vaccine is very ineffective while still very dangerous. I wish that I had not permitted her to get any vaccines.)

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?

She indicates that there was a sudden rise in the U.K., U.S., Canada and Australia around 1990, and it worsened through the 2000′s – why is that?

The odds of a Western child developing a peanut allergy were 1 in 75 as of 2008 – why is that?

She also writes that the person most likely to develop a peanut allergy is a male born after about 1990 in said Western countries whose “ability to detoxify had been challenged by environmental factors” – why is that?

She finds it difficult to accept, as do I, that “hundreds of thousands of children had become allergic to this one food in the space of just twenty years by ingestion alone.”

You can’t blame it on genetics, as the overall rate would stay the same. Logically, there would have to be something in the environment (food, toxins, etc.) that’s triggering this rise.

AN EPIDEMIC OF CHILDREN'S CHRONIC HEALTH CONDITIONS
*****************************************************************************

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a Certified Holistic Health Counselor and Board Member of Epidemic Answers, a non-profit that provides information to parents of children with autism, ADHD, allergies, asthma and any other chronic neurological, behavioral, digestive and/or autoimmune conditions (the etiology is the same). We let parents know that recovery is possible.

I began my own investigations into this epidemic after my sons developed colic, projectile vomiting, cradle cap, ear infections, severe acid reflux, developmental delays, failure to thrive, asthma, Sensory Processing Disorder, hypotonia, eczema, mitochondrial dysfunction and food sensitivities (HINT: They’re all related.)

This is why I find Ms. Fraser’s book so fascinating: she is another mom that has learned to think for herself and do her own research and find out WHY this epidemic is happening.

STANDARD THEORIES NOT SUFFICIENT
**************************************************

She writes about different theories and why they alone are not sufficient to describe this epidemic. These theories are:

The broken-skin hypothesis
The ingestion hypothesis
The toxin hypothesis
The helminth (worm) hypothesis

Instead, Ms. Fraser proposes a new hypothesis: the dramatic increase in peanut allergies happened at the same time that the number of vaccines that children were given also increased dramatically.

And why not? She points out to us that “immunologist and Nobel laureate Charles Richet and pediatrician Clemens von Pirquet were able to show how the injection of vaccine proteins had caused the first allergy epidemic” over 100 years ago.

Apparently, we’ve forgotten our history, so we’re doomed to repeat it.

SO WHAT'S CAUSING IT?
*******************************

With the skill of the historian that she is, Ms. Fraser points out several key facts that point to our vaccination policy as the cause of this alarming rise in peanut allergy, which is paralleled by alarming rises in autism, ADHD, asthma and other chronic health conditions.

The clues she details are:

* “Medical literature illustrated that the only means by which immediate and mass allergy had ever been caused was by injection.” It used to be called “serum sickness” as early as the 1890′s.

* Multi-dose vaccines came into being after President Reagan “signed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act from which emerged the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) in 1988. VICP was a ‘no-fault’ alternative to the tort system… (and) the pressures on vaccine makers eased.”

* In 1985, 7 vaccines were given to children. By 2007, the number had grown to 37.

* Beginning in 1993, multiple vaccinations were given in a single needle.

* Vaccines are loaded with adjuvants, such as aluminum, that stimulate the body to mount an immune response. Adjuvants can cause allergic reactions and are the “immunologists’ dirty little secret’. Aluminum is a known IgE-stimulating adjuvant.

* Peanut oil is used to make vaccine formulations. Not only is it impossible to remove all the proteins (proteins cause the allergic reaction) from the oil, but the quality of oil varies widely. “Refined peanut oil can create allergy whether consumed or ingested.”

* Incidentally, Ms. Fraser points out that soy and egg white are used to make lecithin in vaccines. She didn’t explain in great detail, perhaps because it was out of the scope of this book, but this fact may be what’s behind the huge increase in soy and egg allergies, as well.

Before you dismiss this book out of hand and say it’s a bunch of hooey written by an anti-vaxer, I urge you to read it first, follow her logic and research the references she has prolifically listed. Then you can make up your own mind and think for yourself.

The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What's Causing it and How to Stop it is a masterful example of research and reasoning coming together to solve what had been a mystery, ie. why are far more people, mostly children at this point, allergic to peanuts than a mere three or four decades ago? Strangely, much of the previous scientific guesswork was nearly incompetent in that the answers proposed were obviously wrong--how the peanuts are cooked or how much is eaten at any stage of life is not going to provide an answer when these are factors that in no way have changed much over the history of peanut eating, so they will not explain a sudden change in allergy prevalence. What should have been done, and is done by the writers of this book, was to look at societal changes that were marked in the early 1990s that might have had a correlation with allergic reactions to food. One such change was the huge upswing in vaccination at exactly the same time and the use of peanut oil as an adjuvant. The clues were all there in plain sight (for instance the near nonexistance of peanut allergies in places like Israel and China, the cottonseed oil allergy epidemic in the 1950s, etc.) but no one, until Heather Fraser came along, cared to look.

This book gives the answers in meticulously researched form and shows why other theories carry very little weight. Unfortunately, we also are shown why such answers are not particularly welcome today given the existence of a new and extremely profitable industry that provides alternative foods and medications for people with peanut and other food allergies. Why bother solving the problem when you can make a ton of money by leaving it be?

Sadly, the big debate about autism and allergies is going to make many people feel that this is just a broadside from the anti-vaccination crowd now that the autism issue has been drowned out by a well financed campaign by big-pharma. The truth is, it does not matter in this particular case whether vaccinations have any impact on autism rates or not with regards to the question of their very real and very serious impact on the world's rate of food, specifically peanut, allergies. This book shows beyond any doubt that the ridiculous vaccination schedules for infants and toddlers is creating an extremely serious and at times life threatening situation with absolutely no regard for any negative consequences.

Great book.
