Australian scientists are confident they’ve found a solution to the deadly peanut allergy affecting thousands of children.
Under a new trial, children with the deadly allergy are being fed ground peanuts mixed with a probiotic in a bid to alter the stomach to accept nuts, and not reject them.
According to the scientists, 80 per cent of children in the trial were able to tolerate peanuts by the end of the study.
Allergy and Anaphylaxis Australia figures show three in every 100 Australian children suffer from a peanut allergy.
The figures also show just 20 per cent of those children outgrow the allergy.
“I’m worried all the time,” parent Leanne Reed said.
