And tomatoes isn't on the list? Reportedly I was allergic to tomatoes, but the only thing that happened would be the skin on the roof of my mouth peeling if I ate them, and even then…not always.

Dylan Watts says:

Does no one here actually know that allergies can be over comes? I've know for a couple years now. It's like venom drinkers. Light doses (we are talking micro grams) of protein from an allergic source can give the body time to analyze and adjust, essentially reversing the allergy. I use to have horrible allergies to hydrangeas with massive rashes on my skin, but after a couple dozen exposures (mainly accidental) I no longer get rashes from them. So yeah, definitely possible, but old news… lol, old news

This is great news as peanuts are awesome and it's too bad people are allergic.  I'm allergic to a few raw vegetables and fruits which sucks because I like them.  Fortunately, I haven't had any life threatening reactions.
