Are the peanuts nuts?
Requested by Age2B visitor
by AGE2B

Even though peanuts have the word “nuts” in their name, they are legumes, not nuts. Allergy to more than one nut is common. 1 out of 2 nut allergic teenagers react to more than one nut. 1 out of 3 peanut-allergic patients also report tree nut allergy. And more than half of nut allergic patients report an allergy to peanuts. People with a peanut allergy also commonly avoid tree nuts because of the likelihood of cross-contact or cross-contamination.
