Very interesting and makes sense! In Philippines interestingly there is very less Peanut allergy, probably because peanuts are eaten all the time. Also this is probably similar to some people who are immune to snake bites because they have been bitten in minute doses thus developing tolerance to the venom protein. Thanks for sharing a good article!
At what age should a child be tested for the allergy. Seems like the earlier a child is tested and diagnosed and treatment is started, the better the chances of lessening the allergy.
The source of Vitamin E from peanuts is also useful for preventing Macular Degeneration from occurring.
thats intresting all the way up until age five, you would think that a peanut allergy would show up a little earlier than that but i guess if your body adapts early enough because it wants to survive… great post thanks
