Pollution is making pollen worse for us!

Did you know that pollution has been shown to increase the “stress level” in some plants. That in turn causes higher amounts of allergen particles – which then “stresses” the allergy sufferer.

Another interesting effect we see is thunderstorm related asthma exacerbations. It seems that rain is good to clear the air from allergen, however thunderstorms have a negative effect, causing allergens to become airborne and therefore cause symptoms in allergic individuals.
