A 15-year-old Canadian girl with a peanut allergy died after kissing her boyfriend, who had just eaten peanut butter. Peanut allergies may be on the increase because some baby products contain peanut oil.
Christina Desforges was almost immediately given a shot of adrenaline, which is the standard treatment for anaphylactic shock, but she died anyway. Peanut allergies have been rising recently. Scientists suspect this may be because baby creams and lotions made with peanut oil may sensitive children to peanuts, causing allergies later in life. There may also be peanut oil in baby food, so read labels carefully.
In the United States, about 1.5 million people are severely allergic to even the smallest trace of peanuts and peanut allergies account for 50 to 100 deaths each year.
