    Apparently peanut allergies in kids can be prevented by exposing kids to peanuts at an early age. Another Federal health guideline proven inaccurate and harmful.

    More studies hint that it’s possible to “train” the immune system to tolerate peanuts even if it doesn’t want to by giving children with peanut allergies small amounts of peanuts over a period of time. But researchers now report that it may be possible to prevent peanut allergies altogether. In a study published Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers led by Gideon Lack, a professor of pediatric allergy at King’s College London and Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital, found that non-allergic young infants who ate small amounts of peanuts at an early age had a much lower rate of peanut allergy than those who avoided nuts altogether for five years. http://time.com/3719341/peanut-allergy-cure-treatment/

    Maybe its time to trash the federal guidelines as more and more of them are being proven incorrect, and now harmful?

    Too bad you weren't exposed to a gym at an early age

    I was; didn't help.

    Apparently your exposure to jizz at an early age led to your current love of other men.

    What if pregnant and breast feeding mothers added peanuts to their diets. Would that help eliminate the potential for a peanut allergy in their children?

    It was pretty dramatic, the number of kids with an allergy vs the ones that were exposed early and didn't develop an allergy.

    And kids that were born into a household with a pet dog don't have dog allergies.

    And a Farmer's kid isn't allergic to hay.

    Some shit is just obvious.

    Is this shit for real? When we were all kids and I imagine we're all roughly the same age give or take a decade...do you remember ANY kid in school with a peanut allergy?? I remember one kid was a hemophiliac, one had diabetes but peanut allergies??? This is some sissy bullshit! Everyone's allergic to every fucking thing these days!

    what I don't get is why all of a sudden (well within the past few years or so) do so many kids have this type of allergy. I don't recall it ever being a big deal when I went to school, or when my kids went to school. what has changed?

    I never knew of any hyperactive or ADD kids growing up either. Now half the kids are on Ritalin.

    We had two dogs when my son was born. He had an asthma attack when he was almost 2 that he needed to be hospitalized for. After he was released, we took him to an allergist shortly after and found that he was extremely allergic to dogs. We had to re-home them. He hasn't had an asthma attack since and started sleeping through the night. Also, his constant congestion was gone.
