Millions of people worldwide suffer from seasonal allergies, experiencing months of symptoms. Climate change is not helping this.
Different allergens pollinate during different times of the year, so depending on what you are allergic to, you can experience and battle symptoms at different times of the year. In Australia, trees pollinate in late winter and early spring. Grasses flower next.
This year, suffers are experiencing unusually longerseasonal allergies, andclimate change is to blame.
Scientists have recorded, “earlier starts to spring, warm winters with more rain and snow, and longer growing seasons, which leads to more pollen in the air longer.” What does this mean for those that suffer from seasonal allergies? They are exposed to pollen longer and therefore battle with symptoms longer.
