Packing your child's lunch bag just got a lot easier, because researchers think they've found a cure for peanut allergies.
Earlier this year scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (try saying that 3 times fast) made headlines after they proved that peanut allergies can be prevented early in life.
Like how letting your kids play in the dust and dirt builds up immunity, doctors discovered introducing peanuts early in life - in small doses - prevented children from developing deadly allergies.
In their 600 child study, kids who were introduced to peanuts early were 81% less likely to develop an allergy.
Now the odds are getting even better, because a team of doctors in Australia have developed what could be a permanent cure for peanut allergies.
So how does it work?
