Stop peanut allergy: There is no definitive evidence demonstrating that eating peanuts during pregnancy prevents or causes peanut allergy in the baby. However, there is some evidence that taking probiotics and omega 3 fatty acids may help prevent food allergies. For updated news, you can go to www.Foodallergy.Com.

Maybe: Controversial, but some data says that the risk is higher.
