“Allergies are caused by the body's overzealous reaction to normally harmless substances. Allergies can be triggered by pollen, animal dander, mold, dust, and insect droppings, or by certain foods or insect stings. Upper respiratory allergy symptoms include runny nose, itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing, and sneezing. Up to 50 million people in the U.S. have allergies.” READ MORE (I’M OFF TO WORK IN THE GARDEN..SNEEZE..)
“Airborne allergies affect millions of Americans. It's a fact. And the cause of all this suffering can be linked to the plants and trees around us” IF THIS IS YOU CHECK OUT POLLEN.COM
