Climate Change Will Make Allergy Season Worse
Have you noticed that your seasonal allergies have been getting worse lately?
A report from the AAFA and the National Wildlife Federation shows that between the years 1995 and 2011, warmer temperatures in the U.S. have caused the pollen season to be 11 to 27 days longer.
These warmer temperatures create more pollen in the air, stronger airborne allergens and more allergy symptoms.
More pollen, mold and poison ivy can increase the risks for asthma and allergy attacks.
As climate change worsens, allergy season will get longer.
One in six Canadians suffer from seasonal allergies.
