How common is a peanut allergy?

Does anyone know the percentage of peanut allergy sufferers? I was just wondering how common that was for someone who has allergies. Anyone know?

Re: How common is a peanut allergy?

I'm no expert, and I don't have peanut allergies, but people who have peanut allergies know it, because the reaction is so severe. Eat one peanut and you can go into anaphylactic (sp?) shock. Walk into a room where peanuts have been cooking & your throat starts to close up. It's a real killer allergy.

Re: How common is a peanut allergy?

nuts are in the top 10 most common food allergies. You can do more research on it on this site... or googel it.
