All the facts tell a different story - Peanut Allergy Information

All the facts tell a different story

So this week saw the story about 'feeding peanuts early to advoid allergy'. I went to the New England Journal of Medicine to read the actual report http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1414850?query=featured_home

The part that concerns me the most is how the media is not telling parents they need to talk to a doctor.

So scary that some one is going to give their 6 month old peanut butter and not know what they are doing. It was very small controlled amounts of the protein. Measured to exact grams. Not a 'snack with peanuts' . So mis leading and oh so scary.

Also being left out is that any baby that tested positive before starting with a reaction was NOT included in the study.

Scary how the media can mislead so many.
