あらすじ・解説

Why is the peanut allergy an epidemic that only seems to be found in Western cultures? Over four million people in the United States alone are affected by peanut allergies, while there are no reported cases in India, a country where peanuts are the primary ingredient in many baby food products. Where did this allergy come from? And does medicine play any kind of role in the phenomenon? After her own child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter, historian Heather Fraser decided to discover the answers to these questions.

In The Peanut Allergy Epidemic, Fraser delves into the history of this allergy, trying to understand why it largely develops in children and studying its relationship with social, medical, political, and economic factors. In an international overview of the subject, she compares the epidemic in the United States to 16 other geographical locations, finding that in addition to the United States, in countries such as Canada, the UK, Australia, and Sweden there is a one in 50 chance that a child, especially a male, will develop a peanut allergy. Fraser also highlights alternative medicines and explores issues of vaccine safety and other food allergies, making her book a must-listen for every parent, teacher, and health professional.

Audible制作部より

With an engaging audio presentation by performer Anne Brendle, The Peanut Allergy: What's Causing It and How To Stop It, by author and historian Heather Fraser, is one of the most edifying texts for laymen parents who have children afflicted with peanut allergy. Though people with allergies other than peanut sensitivity, chronic conditions, or no such illnesses will enjoy it too - largely due to the accessible-but-scientific and historically sophisticated backgrounds that the audiobook provides. The deeper look at the social, medical, and economic factors the author provides make this an absolute must-listen.

Money vs our safety! Pharmaceuticals get rich!

Very eye-opening account of what too early and too aggressive vaccination is doing to our children. It is very dry presentation, but VERY worth the listen. We as consumers must speak up! Protect our children.

Completely science-based and informative

Some of the biological and scientific study language gets a little dry at times but the book is one that every parent and expecting parent should read to protect their children. Very well-written and read.
