Peanut Desensitization - Would You Do It?

In the last week or two peanut allergy has been back in the news quite a bit in the last week. The peanut desensitization I wrote about last year (you can read that here ) is really nothing new.
The gist of the treatment is to give very small amounts of peanut flour that increase over time. After a year or two some of the children can tolerate up to 13 peanuts. (If you haven 't read about it before, check out the links above)

I would like to spark a discussion among my readers this weekend. Would you consider this treatment for you PA Kid if it were availableto you to today?

I will chime in later this weekend with my own thoughts on this subject in the comments section. But, I am very interested to hear your take on this somewhat controversial therapy.
