Has anybody read the info the British scientists developed?? I guess they have a new blood test that is 95% accurate at testing who is actually allergic to peanuts and who will have a life threatening reaction. The info I read also states that 8 out of 10 children that they thought were allergic are actually not.
That's interesting!!! Guess there could some hope out there for our little peanuts:)

I read something about that too just yesterday. Good news for a lot of people. Unfortunately, I know my daughter is truly allergic because she had an anaphylactic reaction.
