This is already old news, but I was reminded of the issue today.

I wonder: are you aware that researchers have devised a vaccination against peanuts? This therapy is used to desensitize people with a peanut allergy, I think it is pretty cool :)

I think that's kinda cool. I know I didn't know that. I'm curious though, if vaccines have been developed for other foods or mainly just the most widespread (peanuts in this case)? My ex-girlfriend and I learned that hard way that she was allergic to some kinds of fish (salmon and shellfish specifically) and walnuts.
