newone - better check your facts again, no you do NOT have to eat poultry to suffer an allergic reaction to it, or any allergen for that matter. If a child wear to smear their chicken nugget grease coated fingers on the underside of a table and my leg came into contact with it, then I have an allergic reaction that is commonly referred to as anaphalxis. So yes, my comparison is accurate. You stated earlier "My son is allergic to smoke if he is around it he has a very bad reaction and can end up in the hospital....second hand smoke has been proven to cause cancer..that doesn't affect people!!! Are you kidding me?", this implies that a hospital visit is not a definate; however, if i'm exposed to poultry then 911 has to be called or i'm dead. So again, I'll quote you "it effects people regardless if they choose to do it or not"...but its the hypocrites of this world, like yourself, that doesn't care as long as they get their own way. I'm not a smoker, never have been, never will be; I am a breast cancer survivor: I'm a whole lot of things, including calm...I'm just not a hypocrite.
newone - I'm deathly allergic to poultry, and know of at least 30 other people that are as well. I guess to be "fair" all the eateries in town should be forced to not allow chicken or turkey products to be prepared or served...oh wait, let me guess, you want your chicken sandwich and don't care that the grease your smoke allergic son smears on the underside of the table could kill me...and yes cancer does kill people, and for the record scientific research has proven that long term exposure to red meat, alcohol, coffee, aspartame, diet soda, factory raised poultry, trans fats, and any fruit/vegtable grown commercially and treated with a pesticide/herbacide will also cause cancer, you gonna lead the ban on all of those too?
practice what you preach you hypocrite -- if the "public" establishments are forced to not provide anything that anyone could be allergic to, then we will have no "public" establishments. Leave the business decisions to the business owners and vote with your dollars instead.
May they rest in peace. Please keep both the Pinet and Werdehausen families in your thoughts and prayers.
