Since there have been no world-wide press releases on this study, it should at least be posted here.

This was excellent. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
However, a couple of things (of course [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] )
The parents that consented to have their children's lunches inspected knew that EVENTUALLY the lunches would be inspected, so could they have been being extra careful for a period of time "just in case"?
That being said, of course, this didn't include "may contains" or "made ins" (always a contentious *issue* alongside the "peanut free" classroom issue).
Why did only approximately half of the parents consent to have lunches checked?
What about the lunches of the other half?
If the other half that didn't consent were complying, wouldn't they have consented because it would be like what the he**, I'm contributing to a study and I never send any peanut products anyway?
Also, why the low number of people filling out the questionnaire?
Of course, not expecting answers.
If this is really true, wonderful stuff! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Hi ATMS,
Perhaps some of the questions are answered in the full article. This is only the abstract. You may want to ask your allergy specialist if s/he will give you a copy of the full article. In the full article, the e-mail addresses of the individuals who wrote the article are listed. I have written a few docs with questions about articles they have had published in medical journals and got some good responses.

[i]Monitorability.[/i]
did the parents know that [i]at some time[/i] during the school year there would be an inspection? You know, pop quiz-itis? I believe it mentioned only:
"Parents and students had not been informed of the date of inspection."
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. [i]idea[/i]. You know people and the desire to pass tests. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
I mean, could something similiar to this in schools (don't know if it would be permissible, tho) have the same influence that [i]random drug screening[/i] does in the workplace? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Weird. This topic hasn't been mentionned anywhere that I can see, and I live in Montreal.
I'm also noting that our former allergist is listed in this study, yet supposedly he's in the States for now. Maybe he's back? I'd love to go back to him..
