Peanut allergy is increasing. Something is making them more allergenic. The western way of roasting seems to make certain peanut proteins more allergenic. The Chinese boil peanuts, which aren't as allergenic.
If a biotech lab ever invented something as dangerous as a peanut, I wonder how long would it be before people had the government put a Simpson-movie-like dome over the entire research lab and testing fields. Of course peanuts are "natural" so instead of a movement for banning them we have a movement that looks for boogeymen to blame on why they are so dangerous.
