FAAN doesn\'t believe you
Did anyone read the most recent FAAN newsletter? Their dietician tells parents not to worry about casual exposure to peanut proteins, citing that small and flawed study of 35 children done by Mt. Sinai. Why doesn't FAAN acknowledge that some people react to peanuts as an airborne allergen? I called their editor and explained that we had a cousin who died from anaphylaxis after opening and smelling a jar of peanut butter, yet they still seemed to doubt. Why is that?
