Say ur allergic to a food, but you were starving to death. If someone found u and only offered u that food, Would it still kill you?

say your allergic to peanuts and somehow you ended up stranded in the desert for months. You've been starving and your dying. Someone finds you but they can only give you peanuts to eat. Would eating those peanuts still kill you or is starvation the cure for peanut allergies?

    If the peanut allergy reaction does not kill you, they will in fact nourish you.

    No, starvation does not cure food allergies of any sort.  In this scenario, the peanut-allergic person would have a reaction.  Whether or not they died would depend on how severe the reaction is (not every reaction is fatal.)

    No. You would miraculously be able to eat peanuts.

    If you ate peanuts and had a bad allergy to them you would probably die.  Circumstances do not matter.
