Hi everyone,
I got this in my email inbox from a family member so I thought I would share.


A student at HBHS had pancakes this week and it almost became fatal.
His Mom (registered nurse) made him pancakes, dropped him off at
school and headed to play tennis. She never takes her cell phone on
the court but did this time and her son called to say he was having
trouble breathing. She told him to go to the nurse immediately and
proceeded to call school and alert the nurse. The nurse called the
paramedics and they were there in 3 minutes and worked on the boy all
the way to the hospital. He came so close to dying. Evidently this is
more common then I ever knew. Check the expiration dates on packages
like pancakes and cake mixes that have yeast which over time develop

Apparently, the mold that forms in old mixes can be toxic!
Throw away ALL OUTDATED pancake mix, Bisquick, brownie mixes etc you
have in your home.

You can check this website for more information....... Pancake Mix and Allergic Reaction

P. S. You might want to tell this to your children, grandchildren,
nephews, nieces and anyone else who keeps these type of mixes in the

I just don't like sites where the information might be false. Why even read the info if it may or may not be true? Just doesn't seem right to me that anybody can edit a Wikipedia entry. Can't trust everyone who prowls around on the internet, that'[s for sure!
So, there would be no point in going to any news site, political site, blog or forum. The purpose is to help you make your own decisions. You can spot check a rumor on Snopes or check a fact on Wikipedia for better understanding, but when it comes down to it, you have to make your own opinions. Do research on more than a couple sites.
I use them both often.

let me clarify a bit, snopes is not a horrible site, but like wikipedia, it is not infallible... it is always good to have multiple sources for info & not put your eggs in one basket.
