BBC News reported that a new potential treatment for peanut allergies is seeing positive results. In a study published by The Lancet, 85 children were given a “peanut protein every day” and were asked to eat it at a slow pace and gradually increase that pace over time, BBC said. And after six months, 84 percent “of allergic children could eat the equivalent of five peanuts a day,” BBC reported.
"It meant a trip to the hospital every two weeks,” said Lena Barden, one of the patients in the study, to BBC News. "A year later I could eat five whole peanuts with no reaction at all. The trial has been an experience and adventure that has changed my life and I've had so much fun, but I still hate peanuts!"
