More Peanut Desensitization Studies

Sorry about the lack of posts recently. Bo battled the flu and Dad had an emergency appendectomy so the trip to Little Rock for Bo's peanut allergy food challenge has been postponed. Everybody is doing well now, though Mom needs a much deserved rest from playing nurse to the men of the house while running her travel agency business at the same time!

We are very excited to have received several e-mails recently from our readers that are participating in peanut desensitization treatment studies similar to Bo's at Duke in North Carolina, Australia and Spain! The fact that food allergy desensitization therapies are going global should help give this type of food allergy research and treatment even more medical credibility.

These food allergy treatment studies are laying the groundwork for the day in the not-so-distant future when food allergy sufferers can easily get safe, effective treatments or maybe even prevent anyone from ever developing a food allergy in the first place!

Enjoy Life Foods Granola Recommended by Bo

Over the last 2 months Bo has been eating granola from Enjoy Life Foods. The cool thing about Enjoy Life Foods is that all of their products are free of the 8 most common food allergens (wheat, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, soy fish and shellfish) plus they are made in a dedicated nut-free and gluten-free bakery! As for taste... well we have gone through 3 bags in just 2 months. We have added Enjoy Life Foods granola to Bo's Peanut Safe Foods List. Bo eats the Enjoy Life Foods granola plain as a snack, while Dad likes to add it to cereal, oatmeal or yogurt. Enjoy Life Foods granola is a quick and easy allergy friendly food that is both delicious and nutritious!
