Eating peanuts while watching soccer has led to a discovery: What you eat before you give blood may result in a severe allergic reaction in people who receive that blood. A report in the New England Journal of Medicine concludes that a 6-year-old boy who received a transfusion suffered such a reaction because three of the five donors had eaten peanuts the night before their donation.
