pIt was announced on WHO Radio in Des Moines today that scientists have created an allergy free soybean. They have genetically removed the protein from the soybean that causes allergic reactions./p
pThe story said that the groups that oppose biotech engineered foods are opposing this breakthrough./p
pThe story said that it may be 7 years or more because soybeans with this feature can be grown./p
pSo, if they can do this with soybeans...they can do it with peanuts, too./p
pHope for the future!/p

I read this story today as well. Sounded promising. Never thought about the peanut connection, but that makes sense, cathlina!
