Peanut Power

Many Kids Are Allergic to Peanuts

Lots of kids – and people in general – are allergic to peanuts. But one group of kids with peanut allergies seem to have been cured after doctors tried out a new treatment on them.

Four kids with nut allergies were given a small amount of peanut flour to eat every day. Doctors slowly increased the amount over six months so they became less sensitive to the nuts, and in the end were eating five a day.

But if you are allergic to peanuts, don't try to do this yourself. The research was carried out by medical experts, and if you have an allergy to them it would be very dangerous to try to eat them on your own.

Doctors say they've got to carry out more tests to find out if they've really found a cure for the allergy.

    A year ago my grandfather had died. It's still hard, but in time, everything will be okay, I believe. Just recently my friend's mom died.

    Dear Jaclyn, dont be ashamed to be apart of this generation because there are some children who will be positive and in no way like Giavanna. Giavannna was probably exposed to a lot of stuff, influenced by someone\something,or not in her right mind. try to FORGIVE AND FORGET. and be thankful that you have it better than her.                                                                                           -samkitty
