Does anyone know if paenut shells contain the protein that we are allergic to? I avoid them like the plague but have always wondered if they are as deadly as I think or if peanut butter and peanuts(no shell) are worse. If the shell was not so highly allergic maybe I would feel safe going to a sporting event. I did have some sort of an airborne reaction at a football game but maybe it was the womans perfume in front of us and not all the shells? My husband said he could even smell her perfume and he never smells anything. Haven't gone to any games since because I thought it was the shells. Any insight????
