when it comes to peanut allergy: nothing changes and everything changes
I once read that severe food allergies is a permanent disqualifier for military service in the USA. Two of my three kids will never have to serve.
Found it in the Standards of Medical Fitness:http://www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/r40_501.pdfj. History of anaphylaxis (995.0), including, but not limited to idiopathic and exercise-induced; anaphylaxis tovenom, including stinging insects (989.5); foods or food additives (995.60–69); or to natural rubber latex (989.82), isdisqualifying.
I am OK with this! At least there is a reason!~Elyse~
