|The committee looked at five studies examining multiple vaccinations and their potential to cause allergic diseases, which reflect a hypersensitivity of the immune system to relatively harmless agents in the environment, like pollens, dust mites, insect venom, and specific foods. Some, but not all, of these studies suggested that certain vaccines increase the risk of developing allergic disorders. Methodological weaknesses and inconsistent findings among the studies, however, led the committee to conclude that there is inadequate evidence to either accept or reject a causal relationship between multiple immunizations and increased risk of allergic diseases, particularly asthma.
Although the committee's review of clinical and epidemiological studies found no link between childhood immunizations and immune system dysfunction, its evaluation of basic science research yielded weak evidence of biological mechanisms by which vaccinations might increase the risk of diabetes or allergies. However, there is strong evidence of mechanisms by which vaccinations could increase the risk for infections. While such biological evidence can never prove causality, it can guide further investigation.

|I got to thinking about it when I was reading about how the Chinese consume peanuts in a very similar way to Americans, but peanut allergy is almost nonexistant over there. Also, first generation Chinese immigrants immidiately become as likely as Americans to develop the allergy.|
|I had always thought that it was caused by using peanut oil in infant formula|
|How did you find that, Amnesiac?|
|For quite a while I've been unnerved by the similaritites in "normal vax reactions in infants" and encephalitis.|
|Anyway, I'm giving up on the peanut thing, I guess. I found some references to peanut oil being a protein coat in the HiB, but those were just allusions to it, lacking solid data.|
|Vaccines also sometimes contain adjuvants, substances that enhance the immunizing potential of the vaccine. Peanut oil and aluminum salts are sometimes employed as adjuvants.|
