A POSSIBLE cure for peanut allergy means sufferers may have to talk about something else for a change.
Nut avoider Wayne Hayes said: “It’s great that I won’t suffocate because of eating something that’s been in the same postcode as a jar of Sun Pat.
“However that lingering danger was the lynchpin of my personality.
“It made me seem like a comic book character, trapped between the worlds of the living and the dead – the Peanut Man. Now science has robbed me of that.”
He added: “Well OK, I met Pat Sharp in a car boot sale in Carlisle once. Shall I tell you about that?”
Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “It’s good news for my peanut-allergic children but bad news for me as a parent.
“I mean, what’s the point having kids if you can’t get vicarious attention from their food intolerances?”
