Spring and pollution: bad time for the allergic people

Bad news for allergy sufferers. After a period of extreme cold, higher temperatures will be accompanied by an explosion of pollen, alder, hazel and ash causing asthma and rhinitis (hay fever).

A high percentage of people suffer from rhinitis, and 40% of rhinitis also develop asthma. If pollens are the main cause of hayfever, pollution aggravates the situation.

A mix of pollens and fine particles increases sensitivity. In addition, we are exposed to substances such as volatile organic compounds, which did not exist fifty years ago, or microparticles that can not be measured.

A Japanese study showed that proximity to a highway increased the risk of allergy.

According to WHO, allergies are the fourth leading cause of chronic disease. Sneezing, conjunctivitis, headaches, blurred concentration hinder patients in their daily lives.

Sixteen species of trees such as cypress, birch and plane trees that found in the roundabouts and roadsides should be avoided. Also tall grass and fallow flowery, full of ragweed, are particularly allergenic.
