Peanuts, the cure for peanut allergies?

A recent study suggests many peanut allergies can be prevented by peanuts.
The study at Kings College London involved more than 600 babies at high risk for peanut allergies. Half of the infants were assigned to eat peanut protein, the other half avoided it. Researchers found introducing peanut early dramatically decreased the risk of developing a peanut allergy. Children in the study were followed until they were five years old. It’s estimated two percent of children in the United States have food allergies.
