Break out the Skippy! Food science researchers at North Carolina's A & T University may have found the cure to the common peanut allergy. Apparently they've found a way to deactivate the allergens under the microscope though it still has to be tested on humans. ABC news reported on the new findings, commenting on additional studies at the University of Florida where "researchers are trying to grow a different type of peanut â€" a safe peanut â€" one without the three proteins that trigger most allergic reactions."
But with more than 600,000 sufferers in the U.S alone, I'll bet Mr. Peanut is doing his happy dance all the way to the bank.
