Allergy season worsens with changing climate

New Delhi, Apr 14 (ANI): You already know that allergy season has arrived when you sneeze your head off frequently. A new study has found that allergy season has worsened because of increased pollen count and changing the climate.

As reported by CNN, low-income households and kids tend to be at higher risk of catching diseases like Asthma, because of exposure to pollen. With rising temperature, the situation is likely to get worst for allergies because plants like ragweed will start migrating.

If the temperature continues to increase at its current stride, it is expected that by the end of the century, the growing season will be longer by about a month in most part of the world. Places that did not witness the pollen-producing flora will soon see them in plenty, exposing whole new populations to pollen.

Use AQI monitoring mobile applications to track the quality of air around. To prevent pollen to enter inside, leave your footwear at the door.

Change your clothes if you've been outside
