Can science find a fix for the alarming increase in food allergies?
More than a third of North American children are now allergic to something, be it food, animals, or plants. Food allergies in North America have more than tripled in the last twenty years.
In searching for a fix, scientists are up-ending the conventional wisdom about what causes allergies and how to deal with them. From deliberately giving peanuts to babies…to absorbing parasitic worms through the skin…to investigating the lifestyle of Amish farm families, doctors are attacking food allergies in new and inventive ways.
The Allergy Fix premieres Thursday February 27, 2014 at 7pm (7:30 NL) CBC Television’s The Nature of Things with David Suzuki

Researchers point out that the process of building tolerance is not yet perfected and must be done under the close supervision of trained health care professionals. However, recent research is providing hope that in the future, peanuts may pose less risk for those who are allergic. See the link below for CBC's and BBC's summary.
