    Re: United Airlines - "Not a nut free airline"

    I have a friend that is allergic to nuts that are grown on trees (pecan, macadamia, chestnut, almond, hazlenut, pine) but are not allergic to nuts that are grown underground (peanut). Its very weird.

    I'd love to see the look on people's faces when he has to disclose that allergy to people:

    "Sir, do you have any known allergies"
    "Yes, tree-nuts"

    Nothing wrong with that. This is what it amounts to, anyway.

    It's not all that uncommon, my niece is the same way. "peanuts" aren't actually even technically nuts.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think you get a reaction until the 2nd time you are exposed.

    I didn't know macadamia nuts grew on trees. I learned something today.

    What about gluten intolerant folks? Or people who are allergic to latex? Or wool? Or cotton? Or metals? Or

    Does anybody die of a gluten allergy? I know people die from latex allergies, but it's a far smaller number than peanut allergies.

    Not necessarily true. You can have a more mild reaction the first exposure like hives, and subsequent exposures can get worse.

    Again, not sure of statistics on percentage but many times it goes hand-in-hand. I've also heard that people with peanut allergies sometimes have issues with black beans or other legumes.

    We have one peanut allergy in our family, and my niece was severely allergic to peanuts. In her case she went to a restaurant when she was little and happened to touch a high chair tray that hadn't been wiped off well (child before must've had something with peanut butter) and she had a strong reaction to the oil residue.

    Our third daughter had a reaction to peanut butter Cheerios. Her reaction was just hives, but she did test positive so we haven't tried any peanuts since. The current recommendation is to expose children to peanut butter around 9-12 mo. With all of our kids I ate a ton of peanut butter while pregnant and breast feeding and only one of 4 has a peanut allergy. Because of our family history, when we had our fourth child the Ped wanted us to introduce her to peanuts sooner than later.
