Peanuts. Photo: GettyIf a child has a food allergy, they are currently told to avoid any traces of that food. That could soon change as a result of a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study found that egg allergies could sometimes be reversed by giving small daily doses of egg over time. KQED’s Forum discusses new developments in the prevention and treatment of food allergies.
