Not even remotely.  Actually, it was one of the first diseases against which penicillin proved effective.


Sorry, but when I was a kid I don't recall and of my friends or I having it.
Don't even recall my parents or our doctor even suggesting it.
Never had a throat culture taken.

It seems more common now ... like ear infections, conjunctivitis, and others.

Plunk him in the dreads - no feeling there

No he needs to be beaned or hit on the wrist by a fast ball.  The beaning is just easier.  Bigger target.

All of them were very common fifty or more years ago... there are chronic diseases that have grown much more prevalent in children these days (e.g. asthma) but the diseases you describe have all been very common throughout history.  I don't know that doctors really medicated most of them at the time, though.

And peanut allergies. We were awash in peanut butter when I was young and there was never anyone allergic.

Yeah, stuff like allergies, asthma, autism, diabetes (sadly)... all much more common in children now than they were in the past.  But stuff like ear infections or strep are just diseases infants catch and likely always will, because their immune systems haven't built up sufficiently yet.

Yeah, thanks.   Forgot about that one.    The peanut thing has been a complete mystery to me.

Yeah, thanks.   Forgot about that one.    The peanut thing has been a complete mystery to me.
The speculation is that since children are kept so sheltered and protected these days, their immune systems don't have to work like most children's did in the past.  So for lack of anything else to attack, they become hypersensitive and start attacking harmless allergens like peanut oil.
Can somebody seriously ban this guy?
Just put him on ignore like I did.  I don't even know what he's saying!

I'm still trying to figure out who that 1 person who ignored me was. Hmmm it happened recently.

Same here. Granted I've only been a member for about a week. This is when being registered is way better than lurking.
