Eating Peanuts May Actually Prevent Peanut Allergies, Study Says

The cure for peanut allergies may actually be eating a lot of them at a young age.
King's College London just released a second study on the topic. The college's original, five-year project found infants who were at a high risk of becoming allergic, but ate peanuts frequently during early childhood, were ultimately protected from peanut allergies.
In the latest study, children from that same group were then asked to stop eating peanuts for an entire year. But in this case, avoiding peanuts did not bring on the allergy.
