February has been an exciting month with the release of the LEAP (Learning Early About Peanut Allergy) study results. If you haven’t seen them already you can view the LEAP summary here on their website and the full paper here, free to view.
There are lots of articles discussing these results, but Dave from SnackSafely.com has summed it up nicely for me on behalf of frustrated allergy parents everywhere.
If you have questions about implementing the findings of the new study please contact the appropriate medical professional for advice.
The LEAP study aside there seems to be a lot of encouraging studies out there this month.
