Wellness Wednesday: Alzheimer's Documentary, New Peanut Alergy Guidelines, Wellness Research News
Since 2000 parents have been advised to avoid feeding peanuts to children, up to 3-years-old in some cases, to avoid a potentially life-threatening peanut allergy. New evidence now shows that exposing children to peanuts early on, even as young as 4 months, can actually help prevent the development of peanut allergies. Today we'll discuss this, a new PBS documentary about Alzheimer's and the latest in wellness research.
