BBC News – Hopes rise for low allergy peanut

How amazing could this be? If they can create a peanut that is low allergy, when will they be able to create one that is NO allergy? I know there is the camp that is against the whole genetic manipulation of food, but it’s very cool and promising. Besides, genetically modifying food and plants may lead us to some very important medical discoveries! Researchers are working on peanuts that are low allergy, which could put an end to the problems the popular seed can cause. Through mixing varieties, the US team has managed to remove or reduce key proteins thought to spark the allergy. They stress the resulting peanuts are not genetically modified but the product of conventional cross-breeding. Peanut allergies are relatively common and usually cause breathing problems. But at their most serious, they can lead to a potentially life-threatening anaphylactic shock. Read on… via BBC News – Hopes rise for low allergy peanut. Share...

Keeps Me Safe Bracelets

I was contacted today by Kat in Spain, who wanted to let me know of the Keeps Me safe bracelet. They are an alternative to the Medic-Alert bracelets and the thing about them is thier looks. Hi Kat’s own words: “…the Medic Alert bracelets arent particularly attractive and many people after purchasing one don´t have the desire to wear them on a daily basis as they should, especially women and children. The Keeps Me Safe bracelets certainly are beautiful and trendy, they are made from natural stones /Swarovksi crystals / leather, making them something beautiful rather than something to be ashamed of, and they are not expensive, meaning that people could buy one tag and various bracelets to swap on a daily basis depending on how they feel.” Check out Keeps Me Safe at www.keepsmesafe.com and is available in both English and Spanish. Sample tag: Check out some of these bracelet designs. Share...
