PHOENIX -- For years, parents have been told to keep their babies away from peanuts. But a new study suggests that peanut allergies could actually be prevented by exposing babies to peanuts as early as possible.

Dr. William Mostow, medical director of the Banner Del E. Webb Emergency Department, talked to 3TV about the study, which was presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology.
