Antonio Gambino says:

Story time: ok, so one time these 2 brothers at the cafeteria were throwing food at each other and one of the foods was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. When one of the brothers threw the sand witch the peanut butter splattered all over my arm … I scrubbed for 20 mins straight and thank god I didn’t stop breathing! ( I’m severely allergic to peanuts) so long story short the science of peanut allergies is as simple as be aware of your surroundings when their is an allergic victim in the room 🥜

Mathilde Karolina-Franciska Andersen says:

I was diagnosed with a nut allergy when I was 9 or 10 when I was at a party and ate a bowl of mixed nuts. I can't eat anything that says may contain nuts on the package and have to carry an epipen and loratadine 10mg tablets

Sarahx says:

I nearly died cause of a Brazil nut when I was 4 years old, i was suffocating, but somehow I made it out alive just as I got to the hospital…

Jenny Galanek says:

Peanut allergy is on the rise because vaccines use peanut oil as adjuvants. Human bodies cannot break down complex proteins in the bloodstream.
The "overuse" of peanuts was debunked. Countries that eat lots of peanuts have lower rates than the US.

Jiku Li says:

I've had my peanut allergy for 10 years now, and whenever I get an allergy test, it still shows that I'm still 100% allergic to peanuts. No Nutella, no peanut butter, and not enough protein. Well that sucks. I'm pretty sad that i might be like this for the rest of my life now:(

SoapDropNibba says:

Tracy Johnson says:

It's caused by vaccines!!! The rise in food allergies, specifically peanuts, began in the mid 90s when the vaccine schedule was changed.

Ramsey Adam Clark says:

This is officially my favorite YouTube channel! Well done Reactions!

Jillian Van Hise says:

it's not true that if you have any nut at a young age you will not have a peanut/nut allergy believe me my mom ate many types of nuts when she was pregnant and when I was young I had my first reaction when I was 2

J. M. Pérez says:

you probably get the allergies from peanut butter, so much salt and grease. but your body identifies the danger by the proteins. so your body just think omg!! another load of salt and fat!!! even if it's just the peanut, yb but since our bodies identify the protein first it doesn't know it's just a peanut. it thinks it gonna get all the bad stuff in peanut butter. I absolutely love peanuts, but peanut butter is so disgusting. peanut butter is just a mixture of salt and grease with a little bit of peanut, so disgusting.

Åńdrêw Çøłïn says:

So, we can kill people just by trowing peanuts at them? lol
As Charles Darwin once said: kill him, he's weak- its survival of the fittest >.<

Mono EXE says:

Too bad epipens are now $600 for 2

Bob Bobbers says:
