Abstract:

"What do cats, dogs, peanuts, latex, mold, bee venom, pollen, and shellfish all have in common? They're all common allergens; they cause allergic reactions in many people. With so many potential triggers, it's no wonder allergies are a major cause of illness in North America. In fact, allergies affect about 20 percent of the entire population. That means for every five people you know, one probably itches or sneezes from something sometimes. That might include you. Asthma is one of the many illnesses allergies can cause. Since asthma and allergies are chronic conditions--in other words, they don't go away--they require constant management. The better informed you are, the better you will be able to live with allergies or asthma. This book will show you how to take control of allergies and asthma. The first step is to form a partnership with your doctor or other medical practitioner. Don't let allergies or asthma control your life. Get informed ... take action ... and breathe easy."--Publisher's website.
