Due to the growing number of genetically modified foods and use of pesticides, more people – especially children – are developing allergies to different types of food.
Australian researchers have reported a major breakthrough in the relief of deadly peanut allergy with the discovery of a long-lasting treatment they say offers hope that a cure will soon be possible.
In clinical trials conducted by scientists at Melbourne's Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, children with peanut allergies were given a probiotic along with small doses of a peanut protein over an 18-month period.
When the experiment ended in 2013 some 80 percent of the kids were able to tolerate peanuts.
