I may switch to walnuts.
I have a friend who is deathly allergic to fish and another who gets violently ill when she eats garlic. And then there are people who hate the cilantro, saying it tastes like soap. The cilantro thing has been proven to be genetic, and research is finding genetic clues in people with peanut allergies. It'd seem that food allergies would indeed have a genetic cause, but yeah, you gotta wonder - are food allergies spectrum issues that can cause subtle problems in seemingly asymptomatic people?
Take care with the walnuts, they are high in glutamates!
