NUTS and Bolts of Food Allergies

On this Valentine’s Day, you may be looking for that “killer kiss”…just don’t let that kiss be a killer!

In a 2006 research study, scientists sought to determine how long the peanut protein stays in a person’s saliva.  The results reveal that it takes hours for the protein to be gone completely.  The researchers advise people to brush their teeth after eating peanut products and wait at least a few hours before kissing someone with a peanut allergy.

Just as the person with a peanut allergy must avoid ingesting peanuts, the significant other might choose to abstain from eating peanuts when the couple is together.

Keep out of the nut house!!
