Peanut Allergies in the Media

Peanut Allergies in the Media

Here, for the first time, I will admit that my know-it-all stance on peanut allergies has been tested. PeanutAllergy.com’s Facebook Page continues to teach me facts, offer advice, ask me thought-provoking questions and keep things interesting. So regardless of if you have allergies, take some time to expand your knowledge:

  • almost half of annual ER visits are the result of peanut allergies (DailyRandomFacts.com reference)
  • peanut oil can be used to create dynamite
  • up to 20% of kids outgrow peanut allergies
  • nearly half of kids with food allergies have been bullied (CNN reference)
  • siblings of children who are allergic to peanuts are more likely to develop the allergy

Now, hopefully you’re inspired to go learn more.
