Teen with peanut allergy dies after kiss​
Associated Press Mon, Nov. 28, 2005

SAGUENAY, Quebec - A 15-year-old girl with a peanut allergy died after kissing her boyfriend, who had just eaten a peanut butter snack hours before kissinge her, hospital officials said Monday.
.
Christina Desforges died in a Quebec hospital Wednesday after doctors were unable to treat her allergic reaction to the kiss the previous weekend.
.
Desforges, who lived in Saguenay, about 155 miles north of Quebec City, was almost immediately given a shot of adrenaline, a standard tool for treating the anaphylactic shock brought on by a peanut allergy, officials said.
.
An autopsy was being performed. Dr. Nina Verreault, an allergist at the Chicoutimi Hospital in Saguenay, declined to comment on the case.
.
The symptoms of peanut allergy can include hives, plunging blood pressure and swelling of the face and throat, which can block breathing.
.
Peanut allergies have been rising in recent decades. The reason remains unclear but one study found that baby creams or lotions with peanut oil may cause children to develop allergies later in life.
.
About 1.5 million Americans are severely allergic to even the smallest trace of peanuts and peanut allergies account for 50 to 100 deaths in the United States each year. Canadian figures were not immediately available.

That news popped up when I got online. It was right below "If your butt's too big, it could be a health problem" and right above "Mastodons found in Illinois."

! Here's a thought... the boy killed her on purpose! I mean, he WAS her girlfriend, and most likely knew her allergy. If this is true, he might have eaten the peanut butter snack a few hours before to create an allaby. Could this be the perfect murder? :eek:

nice pun. lol


My sister is deathly allergic to peanuts. my mom had to take her to the emergancy room right away after 1 paticular incident. she could have died that day. :( However, she didn't. The nurses were able to get her stable and were able to keep her alive. :D Surprisingly, she came home and didn't have to stay at the hospital. Peanuts are serious fucking buisness. That's some scary shit. My sister would have suffocated to death from her throat closing. BUT, shes ok :D

They said on the news a couple of months back that it turns out it wasn't the kiss from her bf that killed her. I didn't hear what did cause the reaction though.

there have been incidents of people with peanut allergies getting on airplanes and going into severe allergic reactions just from the dust left behind by the peanuts served during the previous flights. These kinds of allergies are very serious.
