Daughter Has Peanut Allergy

When Obama signed a bill encouraging schools to stockpile epinephrine, which is used to treat people with severe allergies, he revealed that his 15-year-old daughter, Malia, has a peanut allergy. It was known that she has other allergies, which is why the Obamas chose Portuguese water dogs as the family pets. The breed is said to be good for allergy sufferers. Obama said making sure epinephrine is readily available in schools in case of emergency is "something that every parent can understand."
