Peanut allergy caused by trying to avoid it?

Researchers in London, England have found that the main cause of peanut allergies may be the avoidance of peanut exposure during pregnancy and breastfeeding.  They discovered that countries that limit natal peanut exposure, such as the U.S., U.K., and Australia, have increasing rates of peanut allergies, currently ten times more than countries such as Israel where peanuts are consumed regularly by pregant and breastfeeding mothers.
