A peanut may be a cross reactivity. In some people, the peanut and pollen from Timothy cross react. I am sure there are many things that react with
it. I doubt if we would be told if it was Soy, Soy is in everything. The increase could be from changes that have been done to the proteins of other
foods also, we are messing with them all the time. GMO is classified when we alter the DNA with DNA from bacteria or fungus or something that is not
plant. Is The timothy genetics incorporated into anything, it wouldn't be classified as GMO because of the definition of genetic modification. There
are no rules or laws that are there that address this, reporting does not even have to be done.
When an allergy occurs with cross reactivity, both conditions need to be met. Many people may have a peanut allergy if they consume something that
cross reacts with it, but never know they have the allergy if the cross reactive partner was not around. Is this the fault of the peanut or the
people who are messing with re-engeneering the food.. I personally cannot eat bananas within at least 8 hours of eating potatoes without getting a
little cough and shortness of breath. I also have a problem if I eat two many tomatoes, it is an intollerence though. If I drink orange juice for
breakfast, the tomatoes give me more problems....These two share a couple of similar chemistries. I do not have an allergy though. This is
classified under metabolic issues.
I know at least four people who have peanut allergies, bad allergies. It's still there, it is just that the media is not pushing people's awareness
and most people do not bring it up. People in the schools know well about the people with peanut allergies, they are not lowering in numbers, the
numbers seem to be slowly rising at least around here
