This was interesting to take and would be good for family members or friends who don't quite get it.

Yeah! I scored 100%. Guess all that reading it doing something.
This is a wonderful quiz, Patty R. The interactive component is great for those slower learner relatives.
Thanks for posting it!

I really like this! It's pretty easy to get 100% and if one didn't... hmmmmmm, I'd have to think about those implications. I guess that's the whole point of the quiz.
This would also be a great educational tool to use by your school nurse, or principal and teacher. Also for baby sitters, in-laws, etc.
Excellent link. Thank you, Patty!!!

Well I didnt get 100%, but that's mainly because we differ (we = me vs the quiz) on what's "rare".
In my books, a person with severe allergies is a rare thing, even though they're not terribly hard to find. For me, 10% of the population is still a rare thing. It's really just semantics, cause we were not disagreeing on numbers, just on the wording.

I too think that this was a wonderful link. Thank you Patty for showing the way! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/cool.gif[/img]
I also think Gail [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] makes a great point in using it as a tool for our schools, babysitters and families.
Once again thank you,

Simply re-raising so I can check the link out later, do the quiz and then forward it on to some people (as if any of that made any sense but to me [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] ) (It's like to-day, I asked DH if he had seen my very tiny vegetarian cookbook so I could find my tabouli salad recipe. He hasn't seen it and neither have I. I said, oh, that's okay, I posted the recipe on PA.com I can get it from there! - see if I post everything about my life here I have a permanent record as long as PA.com exists! LOL! I swear!
