I’ve been reading more this week about the doctors at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and their amazing trials to cure peanut allergy. But what is the answer? Should we avoid foods? Cure allergies with lengthy and complicated desensitisation treatment or slowly reintroduce foods naturally to avoid the problem in the first place?
I often ask myself the question, “Why do I get allergies?” and “Why do other people NOT suffer at all?” It does seem quite unfair. I eat a very healthy diet as a result of avoiding so many nasties, I don’t smoke, don’t drink that much, try to keep fit and do as much exercise as I can, so what’s the key?
