Scientist's have stated that within a decade food allergies could be virtually eradicated, it has been stated that new vaccines which will attack the molecules that cause these allergies will be created using genetic engineering techniques. these would be used in conjunction with other medicine's that reduce the inflammation caused by the alergic reaction (one of the most dangerous effects of any allergic reaction)
Food allergies could be virtually eradicated in 10 years, according to scientists at a major conference.

The scientist leading the research - Dr Ronald van Ree, from Amsterdam University - said a vaccine with no side effects was in sight.

If these vaccines prove to be successful then it will surely save thousands from suffering? In some cases food allergies can prove to be fatal not only for the young and infirm but also the fit and healthy as well, hopefully this will bring an end to this.
