A charming explanation of the recent development in research into treatment for peanut allergy.

via trynerdy

This is the part where science fixes everything: researchers at Northwestern Universityhave developed a technique that effectively cures peanut allergies in mice, and would presumably work in humans as well. Not only that, but the technique could easily be applied to eradicate an allergy to eggs, or strawberries, or shellfish…whatever your immune system has been keeping you from enjoying.

Thanks, science.
