The Peanut allergy, Calomel and Thalidimide

A brief bit of original thought here. Peanuts, Calomel and Thalidomide all have something in common it seems.

Animal testing will not show the effects they can have on children, or a developing fetus.

Large studies also would miss the possible fatal consequence of these substances on children, that have an allergic reaction to them.

This is one of the blind spots of modern science.  All the double blind testing in the world may not reveal what will actually happen when human children are exposed to something that may harm them.
