I personally have noticed that there has been an increasing number of peanut allergies around me. Whenever I visit my elementary school, I notice that on almost every classroom door there is a sign that reads, "No Peanuts Allowed!" I only remember there only being two or three classes with that sign up when I attended the school before. I feel that this research has given other researches invaluable information on peanut allergies that has not been accessible in the past. While the EpiPen might be a temporary solution for people who endure these life-threatening reactions, there needs to be another solution that will give them long term relief.
