Infants eating peanut butter can drastically reduce peanut allergies

According to a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, scientists found that feeding smooth peanut butter to infants aged 4-6 months reduced peanut allergies by 77%. The government’s recommendation to start solid foods at 6 months of age is something the researchers believe needs to be revised. Food allergies are the result of the immune system seeing food as a serious threat. Common foods that cause allergies include wheat, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, etc. Peanut allergies have become so common that some schools have banned peanuts from their food. Numerous studies have shown that eating allergy-related foods early in a baby’s development can significantly reduce allergies. The latest study found that eating peanuts in infants between 4-6 months can reduce allergies by 77%, and if they are delayed until after 1 year of age, allergies can only be reduced by 33%.
