Re: Kindergarten teacher does not take nut allergy serious

I know someone who did their doctor thesis on allergies. One of the things she said at her presentation was that there are various studies which indicate that some food allergies are cultural.

The most common food allergy in the US is (was, it's 24 years ago now) peanuts. The most common food allergy in CH at the time? Celery.
It is really interesting. I know one Swiss person with a nut allergy. Small sample could it be because Peanuts are used a lot more in anglo saxon areas? When I was a child, peanut butter was not know here. The only way you ate nuts was at an Apero, salted ones, or at Samichlaus, spanisch Nüssli. The only allergy I knew as a child was hay fever (Heupfnüsel). That's it. Interesting topic!
