Peanuts for babies?

Letters

Editor:

In 2014, CTV News reported: “Peanut allergies are on the rise globally and affect about one in 50 children, mostly in high-income countries.” Now doctors are recommending prevention by feeding six-month-old babies peanut protein! Heather Fraser, author of The History of the Peanut Allergy Epidemic, wouldn’t be impressed; she doesn’t think lack of peanut consumption causes the allergy. Amazon’s review of her book states that, “in the early 20th century, doctors including the 1913 Nobel Prize in medicine winner identified vaccination as the cause of the first pediatric allergy epidemic impacting 50 per cent of children. … More than 100 years of medical literature describes how vaccination creates allergy to what is in the shot, air or body at the time of injection.” Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych notes that “bizarre appearance and waning of widespread allergies to certain foods in human populations has followed the introduction and then withdrawal of specific medical formulations delivered by injection.”

Stephanie Seneff, a senior research scientist at MIT, says Fraser’s book provides “impeccable scientific evidence.” In its foreword, Janet Levatin, MD, states that “it should be required reading for everyone who administers injections, who receives injections, and everyone who authorizes injections.”
