By releasing pulsed, or concentrated, bursts of light containing multiple wavelengths, PUV changes peanut allergens so that human antibodies can’t recognize them and cause the release of histamines, which are responsible for allergy symptoms such as itching, rashes and wheezing.

You do find the darnest things out. Thanks for posting that....it is very interesting....and good news. I must admit, some of it way over my head, but I get the jist.

As someone who lives with another allergen, it will hopefully lead to more....but on the downside, it gives me thought about at least when we are forced to think and be concerned about a "peanut allergy" it does help pave the way for us when it comes to educating others. I hate to say that, but it is scary in a way....when we educate the public at large, the peanut is a place to start....most have at least heard about it.

The technique also has shown to be effective with allergens in almonds and shrimp, he said. He hopes to continue perfecting the method with peanuts.
