Seasonal Allergy Edition
Is the winter weather still torturing us?
Our partners at NBC News were kind enough to point out that the brutal winter season may still be afflicting some of us – in the form of a worse than usual allergy season. Isn’t that just great? 😉
So as yesterday’s April showers bring on today’s May flowers, we offer you a data-driven look at just how much more itching eyes and sneezing seems to be expected. Globally, it’s nearly a third more (31%). And here in the States, it’s almost a 50% increase!
On the bright side, some cultures view sneezing as a sign of good fortune. Gesundheit!
