I thought this was an interesting finding...
 

"More Than Half the U.S. Population is Sensitive to One or More Allergens

More than fifty percent of the U.S. population tested positive to one or more allergens, according to a large national study."

I saw this article today and thought I'd update the last news article on this re allergies.  Hugs, Teri tongue

"Most Americans Have Allergies

The highest prevalence rates were for dust mite, rye, ragweed, and cockroach, with about 25 percent of the population testing positive to each allergen. Roughly 18 percent reacted to Bermuda grass, 17 percent to cat, 15 percent to Russian thistle, and 13 percent to white oak and mold."

What are your allergy woes? I have asthma and it's year round - though it's pretty well controlled with Advair......it's nice to know you are not alone - with 50% of America sharing the pollen!

Hugs, Teri :)
