Long, long ago, in the year 2000, the American Academy of Pediatrics told parents to keep their kids away from these little buggers: peanuts.

A trial included around 600 babies younger than a year old who were considered at risk of developing peanut allergies. It found their risk of developing the peanut allergy was cut by more than 80 percent when they ate the food earlier in life. (Video via NY1)
