Hi!
 
I'm always on the alert reading and researching and today I saw in the news an article re Healthcare workers and the fact that they have an increased risk for occupational asthma.  yeah
 
The culprits that cause this increased risk are Latex, disenfectants and cleaning type products.
 
So beware and take care  skull those gloves and disenfectants used anywhere could perhaps cause problems!

"The only advice doctors can give to the 4 percent of Americans with potentially life-threatening food allergies is to avoid the culprit food, often nuts or shellfish. But that may change as researchers in a new Food Allergy Research Consortium, announced today, strive to develop therapies to treat and prevent food allergy."
