Below is a link to a blog post about a new treatment being developed that may reduce the risk of death by peanut. I've read an article about this a few weeks ago, but James explains it really well in this blog, so thought I'd share.

Hope on the Horizon for Pediatric Peanut Allergies.

Hi Pen, thanks for sharing this article. It's wild that there are over one million American kids with a peanut allergy and that number tripled in the last few years...woah! I had no idea the numbers were so staggering. It's great news that there's a new therapy out there now to help reduce the sensitivity to peanut allergens. I haven't heard about this, so it was really insightful. I'll spread the word too. Thank you so much for sharing this. It's this type of information here that's going to help us all get to a better place.
