I see two causes
1. Soy milk and soy in baby formula. Babies are not supposed to get this foreign protein and develop antigens to it. Soybeans and peanuts are legumes.
2. Wealthy families have cleaner homes. The human immune system was designed for less sanitary conditions. If our immune system isn't going to fight disease, it will pick other targets.

#1......concerned me as a mom. Because soy contains phytoestrogens.

That makes a lot of sense. I’ve wondered about the huge increase in this allergy for awhile now. Never heard of it until about 15 years ago, and now every kid has it

Agree with your conclusions; but clearly; if ‘wealthy’ families ‘breed’ peanut allergies; these should be non-existent by 2016.
