Climate Change and Your Health
Climate change is a major shift that affects the entire world. But it can also have adverse effects on a local level, such as by increasing the number of patients seeking allergy treatment. Watch the accompanying video to hear an expert discuss why climate change is causing allergies and asthma to worsen.
Since climate change brings more frequent and severe storms and floods, it has a direct effect on the mold in the environment. Mold allergies and asthma attacks are the result. Additionally, as levels of carbon dioxide increase, pollen production also rises. This triggers seasonal allergies.
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, consider seeing an allergy specialist in Blue Bell, Center City, Lansdale, Philadelphia, Jenkintown, Pottstown, King of Prussia, or Collegeville, Pennsylvania. You can schedule an appointment regarding asthma or allergy treatment by calling Allergy & Asthma SpecialistsSM at 1(800)86-COUGH.
