Allergy & Environment

A variety of air pollutants have been attracting attention as one causative factor. Epidemiological and toxicological research suggests a causative relationship between air pollution and the increased incidence of asthma, allergic rhinitis, and other allergic disorders. These include ozone, nitrogen dioxide and, especially particulate matter, produced by traffic-related and industrial activities. Strong epidemiological evidence supports a relationship between air pollution and the exacerbation of asthma and other respiratory diseases.

Keep windows closed and use air conditioning if you're allergic to pollen. Don't use fans since they can stir up dust.Filter the air. Cover air conditioning vents with cheesecloth to help filter pollen and use high efficiency particulate air filters. Clean air filters frequently and air ducts at least once a year.Keep the humidity in your house below 50% to help prevent mold growth.
