The End of Peanut Allergy

Allergic to peanuts? There could be new treatment that would eliminate that allergy for up to four years, according to recent research.
Scientists from Murdoch Childrens Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, conducted a study, which was published in The Lancet Child & Adolescent Health journal, to determine how probiotics could keep peanut allergies at bay in the long term.
To do so, they combined a bacteria called Lactobacillus rhamnosus, which is known to calm the immune system and reduce allergic reactions, with a peanut protein in increasing amounts for a process known as peanut oral immunotherapy. The mix was designed to alter the way the immune system reacts to peanuts.

"Due to changes in program priorities," the letter began, "it has been determined that it is in the best interest of the Federal government to no longer continue funding" the grant for one of our hospital's teen pregnancy prevention programs. This one-page form letter, sent from the Department of Health and Human Services, arrived almost a year to the day that HHS initially approved our five-year project with glowing reviews about how the Children's Hospital Los Angeles is "recognized for innovative service and training models, leadership in community collaboration, and research regarding adolescent issues" and has "over 50 years of experience in implementing programs in safe and supportive environments for youth and their families."

Climate Change and Snowshoe Hares

The quintessential image of a snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus) is a pure white bunny – although it is a hare, not a rabbit – nestled in powdery snow, gazing out from under the overhanging branches of a balsam fir. I can almost see my breath and hear sleigh bells just thinking about it.
