Does anyone know if the research that is being done on Peanut Allergies ever involves looking for "common denominators" among those in a study group? You have to wonder why the numbers of peanut-allergic children have doubled in the last 5 years... Does anyone have any answers or any guesses?? I would think that families of children w/these allergies must have racked their brains wondering why --and I wonder what they/you have come up with.. In the very very short time I have suddenly become a "member," (ie, related to a PA child), I can't stop thinking about it and agonizing over it...Have there been any published studies done? Has anyone read any of these? I would love to see what kind of criteria they include-- For example, have parents in the last 5 years practiced cleanliness to an extreme-- ie, could there possibly be a disadvantage to using anti-bacterial products frequently? Are the parents vegetarians? etc etc...Thankyou for any info any of you can provide.
