"Weed the Peanut Kids Out of the Gene Pool"


Hey, ignorant (probably teenage) comment troll.

Yes, I'm talking to you. You're the one commenting on the Anderson Cooper article about the kid with EoE who can't eat, right? You've written things like:
Charles Darwin was right..... Only the strong survive. 

Just put the lil guy down. I'm sorry but thats natural selection, he's not fit to live. 

When the offspring cannot consume the species' diet, they typically do not survive long enough to reproduce. Nature takes care of the polluted gene pool swiftly. 
Your comments really piss me off, but probably not for the reason you think. See, my kid has been allergic for 17 years now so I've seen my share of haters. Haters gotta hate and I know that. I've dealt with the Facebook groups calling for his death. I've heard the stories about classroom bullies who think it's funny to spread peanut butter on his backpack. I'm over that part of things. I don't profess to understand why you need to go through a stage of public hating, but I don't internalize your hate anymore.

Except with statements that are factually inaccurate and short-sighted. Then I get pissed.

Food allergies are not a genetic disease. Let me say it again. Food allergies are not a genetic disease.

In case you didn't learn this in school, changes to the genetic code take many hundreds of generations to happen. Food allergies have DOUBLED in just the last 10 years. Right now, one in 13 kids has a food allergy and it looks like the number is continuing to increase.

Food allergies are a disease of the immune system. Unlike the genetic code, the immune system can adapt to changes in the environment in a generation, but it can only go so far. These kids are not genetically deficient. They are a warning. They are the canary in the coal mine. Something has changed in our environment that is affecting ALL of us. The "peanut kid" may have an allergy as a result -- but that doesn't mean that YOUR immune system isn't also reacting in some way you can't see. Whatever's affecting the peanut kids is probably affecting you as well.

Food allergies are just the tip of the iceberg. All diseases that affect the intestinal tract are rising at an incredible rate. Crohn's disease. Asthma. Autoimmune disorders like lupus and diabetes. Cancer. Even if you're not in the 25% of the population prone to allergic disorders, you should understand that cancer could be in your future. Doesn't it seem like a good idea to you to figure out what the changes are in our environment that are leading to such a dramatic increase in all these diseases?

Plus, I know you think this will never touch you in the future, but I can almost guarantee it will. Look at that statistic: 1 in 13. Food allergies have doubled in the last 10 years. What if they double again? Right now, there are, on average, two allergic kids in every classroom. What if it's four by the time you have kids? This is all fun and hate games until you have to look at your kid (or niece or friend's child) swelling like a balloon and gasping on the floor.

Just think about it. That's all I'm asking. And, if you gotta hate...hate a little smarter next time.

So in all the time I've been writing about our experience with FAHF-2, I have never done a comprehensive post with all the links/info I've found over the years. Consider the situation rectified! I'll add to this as I find new sources. If you have good ones, please feel free to add them to the comments as well.
