Seriously though, that`s cool, but I`m surprised it took this long to figure out.
Anyone else getting this?
So this amazing scientific discovery is no news at all, and it simply is "Live life, and don`t let things hold you back from trying what you like"
BTW I am still so allergic to beestings that I have to carry an antihistamine injection at all times, cause the main neck arteries swell within seconds to cut off breathing. It doesn`t stop me doing anything.
amen to that!
The priorities of some people I tell ya.
Please leave science to the experts, they usually know what they`re doing. Not always, but usually.
And also, allergies cannot be cured through injections, or else nobody would really be allergic to things like pollen or iv rays. some people acquire allergies later in life. Allergenic reactions are overreactions of the immune system, they have nothing to do with building up immunities. Sometimes your body can get used to it, but stop thinking it`s the typical "oh this is so obvious they`ll grow a resistance in like 2 days"
dragosal, do you know ANYTHING about the immune system? We make immunities by making antibodies to antigens that are released by toxins or are attached to certain bacteria and viruses. However, peanut allergies are an OVERREACTION. we can make antibodies for them, but all they do is go along with this overreaction. antibodies have NO effect whatsoever on overreactions, because they`re in a completely different category. It`s the histamines and prostaglandins we have to learn to control. Perhaps there are cases like these where it does work. But generally that`s not how it works
My sis has a peanut allergy.
