They used to give you a peanut butter sandwich at my elementary school if you forgot your lunch or lunch money ... and don't forget the 4 cents to pay for it tomorrow. They also gave one to a kid in my kindergarten class to clean his teeth when he ate some yellow crayons. Children would die now, including my nephew ; my sister has an epi pen on hand 24-7.

You are so right! Our immune system needs practice to stay strong. We only washed our hands if they were actually dirty, we ate dirt, shared a bottle of soda with a friend, dropped food-picked it up and ate it, etc. I'll be 65 and I'm doing fine.

Seems to me there's been an incredible rise in the number of American children with such allergies, and I've heard one explanation for it that makes sense to me: Our modern hygiene means that infants are no longer exposed to various environmental substances, so their immune systems don't learn to cope with them.
