Yes I found it rather entertaining, did they notice that peanut maids only got a mild form and were then immune...

Gomsy; Indeed. Surely a cure for an allergy is simply to avoid that which causes the allergy. Now folk allergic to peanuts can eat peanuts. Yippee! The problem is this: this wonder cure only works if the subject eats a certain amount of nuts every day. If the subject stops eating nuts every day, the "cure" dies not work. Peanut butter for breakfast...ugh...=)

Spin....Klingons drink prune juice. Do you object?

Wasn't the original problem that at one time pregnant women were 'advised' against eating peanuts and so children were born with no tolerance? Reversing this has reversed the problem.
We now have the 'wet-wipe' phenonema which will surely cause unknown problems for tomorrow's young adults. The resurgence of the Black Death, perhaps.

At least we no longer have pubic lice on account of the teenage preference for shaving!
When the fad passes, perhaps a new 'foreign' variety will get introduced that will be the size of lobsters, so big that they will be eligible for benefits.

Avoiding what you are allergic to isn't a cure, it's avoiding what you are allergic to.
