Friday 07 Jul 2006: Peanuts are not nuts
Although culinarily classified as a nut, technically a peanut is not a nut, but a member of the pea family. That's probably why people who are allergic to peanuts are not necessarily allergic to other/real nuts and vice versa. In the same botanical sense coconuts, cashew nuts and pistachio nuts are not nuts either.
