Description
Why is it that so many schoolchildren seem to be seriously allergic to peanut products, and why is this peanut allergy an epidemic that only seems to be found in Western cultures? Over four million people in the United States alone are affected by peanut allergies, yet there are no reported cases in India, a country where peanuts are the primary ingredient in many baby food products. A historian whose own child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter, Heather Fraser compares the epidemic in the United States to 16 other locations, and finds a link in those countries' medical practices. Fraser also highlights alternative medicines and explores issues of vaccine safety and other food allergies.

"The findings and conclusions of Heather Fraser ... may in time come to be recognized as a major landmark in medical history. In the best traditions of medical investigative literature, the author has shown plausible reasons that the presence of peanut oil and other substances in vaccines may be playing a contributory role in many increasingly prevalent childhood health problems."—Harold E. Buttram

"Extensively researched and entertainingly written, the book contains a wealth of information about the history and origins of the epidemic of peanut allergy which has occurred in the past twenty years, as well as the vaccines and their additives that we have injected into our children in ever-increasing amounts over the same time period. It reads like a detective novel, but is all well documented, and astonishingly true. This book should be required reading not only for parents and physicians dealing with peanut allergy, but anyone connected to the vaccine industry or the Food and Drug Administration."—Roger A. Francis
