Kiss of Death

This is really tragic.

MONTREAL - Thinking she was having an asthma attack, Christina Desforges burst into a friend's room and woke him in a desperate search for medicine. Friends called an ambulance as her breathing grew labored, but Desforges collapsed a moment after she stepped outside. She died four days later.

It quickly became clear the 15-year-old girl succumbed to a peanut allergy _ not from nuts she ate, but a peanut-butter sandwich her boyfriend had consumed before kissing her that day.
