(Natural News) Peanuts are high on the list of foods that kids are commonly allergic to these days. And for children who have this allergy, even the smallest exposure to a peanut can result in serious – even life-threatening – anaphylaxis. Experts freely admit that the peanut allergy situation in America is so serious as to be labelled “almost epidemic,” but insist they have no idea what’s causing the problem.
A report by Mount Sinai Hospital’s Jaffe Food Allergy Institute found that between 1997 and 2008, the number of kids with peanut allergies tripled, from just 1-in-250 to about 1-in-70. This is shocking when you consider that even a few decades ago peanut allergies were almost unheard of, and in Eastern countries like India, where children eat large amounts of peanuts, such allergies are extremely uncommon.
Clearly, something specific is causing this massive increase in peanut allergies among Western children. Could it be the fact that peanut oil is a common – though hidden – adjuvant in many of the vaccines routinely recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)?

“Almost an epidemic”
CNBC recently reported that peanut and other food allergies are definitely on the increase in the United States. While Big Pharma has promised all kinds of miracle drugs to slowly expose children to peanuts or deal with the problem in some other way, the truth is that experts have no real, scientific evidence as to what is causing the problem – or what to do about it.
“It really is almost an epidemic,” Dr. Scott Sicherer, the The Jaffe Food Allergy Institute’s director, told CNBC. “It’s impossible to deny an increase, even with anecdotal reports from school nurses.” He added that “about two (children) per classroom have food allergies. It’s not just our imagination.”
The National Institutes of Health insists that early exposure to allergenic foods could help mitigate the problem, but this can’t really be a solution, since, as already noted, kids in other countries where peanut consumption is massive don’t have anywhere near the same level of peanut allergies as American and other Western children do.

Vaccines are full of supposedly “harmless” adjuvants … including peanut derivatives
In the mid-1960s, peanut oils were first introduced into vaccines because scientists hypothesized they could “prolong” immunity. Somehow, they thought, the oil would act as a time release capsule. Within 20 years, peanut oil was the preferred “excipient” – meaning a substance formulated alongside the active ingredient of a medication for the purpose of long-term stabilization. The dangers of its use, however, were well-documented. The problem? Doctors and scientists had lumped immune response with immunity, making a grave mistake that’s still assumed to be true today. The myth is that the greater the allergic response to the vaccine, the greater the immunity that is conferred. Wrong!
So, as the number of mandated vaccines increased, and peanut oils were added as immunity-boosters, the number of children with peanut allergies increased exponentially. The link between vaccines and peanut allergies is therefore not confusing or obscure. It’s simple: Vaccines are full of things that are simply not good for our kids – including peanuts – and parents should be informed of that fact so that they can make the right decision about vaccinating their children.
