However, as a parent of a child with a severe peanut allergy, I can assure you that it is real and that its frightening, so please no comments about natural selection or we all had allergies when we were kids and we turned out OK ... Those comments just show your ignorance.
Yes, these things are real. I think there's no question that it is getting worse and no one has a definitive explanation(s).
That said, we cannot accommodate every single severe allergy out there. I have a sister-in-law with numerou severe allergies. Perfume, cat dander, incense and tobacco odor being just several of them. They can land her in the hospital pretty easily. She basically has to live her life around her allergies.
People whose lives or healthy are threatened by such commonly occuring ordinary things may have to consider special measures, including home schooling, rather than make everyone else miss out on things like a pet cat, church incense or an oak tree in the playground.

I don’t disagree with you. However, there are some minimal things that can be done as a courtesy to the allergic person, without much inconvenience to the others. It angers me when people object even to these.
