Reverse the Nut Ban at Aurora Elementary School
This petition made change with 99 supporters!
Aurora Elementary school has decided to make our school peanut free. While nut allergies are clearly a risk to some students, often the response to this health concern represents an overreaction to the magnitude of the threat. While it’s reasonable for schools and parents to take basic precautions, there is no scientific evidence that nut bans are particularly effective at protecting children with peanut allergies. Many Doctors and Scientists believe that limiting widespread exposure to nuts can make things worse. The “policy of avoidance” means that fewer children are being exposed to nuts, likely increasing their risk for developing an allergy. We as a community and parents of children that attend AES need to to take a stand and fight this ban on peanuts. Please help us fight back by signing this petition.
