My name is Rosa I will be talking about what is a peanut allergy/can it be cured ?
A peanut allergy is a common food allergy, peanuts and tree nuts are not the same because tree nuts like walnuts and almonds grow on trees and peanuts grow underground. More than 3 million people have an peanut allergy in the us.
Did you know only 20% of kids and adults grow out of a peanut allergy,the peanut allergy tripled between 1997 to 2008. there also different nuts like goober nuts and Mandelonas,some families get peanut allergies because it runs in the family.
Did you know that cats and dogs can be allergic to peanuts,you see cats need high protein and peanuts have high protein which can be good for pets,but peanuts contain a lot of fat which can mess up there digestive System which can cause them to vomit. If cats are allergic to peanuts the Symptoms are swelling,hair loss,running or itchy eyes. Dogs can also be allergic to peanuts,if you give your dog a spoonful of peanut butter an anaphylatic shock will happen the symptoms are red and itchy skin and excessive licking on the skin.
they also made a cure for a peanut allergy,a hospital, royal children hospital made a cure by giving peanut protein a day for 18 months,about 1 month later 80% of kids and adults could consume peanuts and peanut butter.
