Re: “Poor Peanuts

Young students with severe, life-threatening peanut allergies deserve a safe school environment.
If they ingest even a small amount of peanut protein, their bronchial tubes can swell shut, causing death by asphyxiation.
This is not a medical condition that can easy "worked around" as has been suggested here. Peanut butter gets all over school surfaces poses a fatal risk to students with severe allergies.
It's not just some "inconvenience."

Let's all hope that our medical researchers learn what causes this life-threatening allergy and develop a solution.
Who knows -- the research might help us understand other auto-immune diseases such as diabetes which affect much of the world population.

Until then, is it really a massive inconvenience to eliminate peanuts from the school environment?
