There is no place safe from allergies in America, and some cities are more problematic than others. The Allergy Capitals is an annual research project of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to identify “the 100 most challenging places to live with allergies” during the spring and fall seasons. The data measured and compared each season includes:
Pollen scores (airborne grass/tree/weed pollen and mold spores)*
Number of allergy medications used per patient
Number of allergy specialists per patient
Call 1-800-7-ASTHMA to discuss the report in detail or to speak with a member of AAFA's External Affairs Department.
Find household appliances and related products that are proven more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. Visit www.aafa.org/certified to learn more.

*("Pollen score" is comprised of comprehensive recorded levels of airborne grass/tree/weed pollen and mold spores, and prevalence data for each of these specific types of allergens.)
