Study: Allergies in small children have doubled in 10 years

A recent study found that the presence of allergies in children under 5 has just about doubled in the past decade, with emergency treatments for severe allergic reactions increasing seven-fold, StaffNurse.com reports.

"The lack of exposure to potential allergens since childhood appears to reduce the chances that our immune system recognises what is safe and what is not, even triggering a response against proteins found in foods generally tolerated by the body," Professor Maria Antonella Muraro told the news source, citing exposure to cigarette smoke as a potential contributing factor.

Fortunately, a medical-grade air purifying system, such as those carried by FreshAirPro, can tackle both allergen-inducing airborne contaminants and the pollutants that can cause them, such as smoke and other harmful gases and chemicals.

The top-rated, best-selling IQAir HealthPro Plus comes with four advanced filtration technologies to tackle well over 99 percent of all particulate matter. Its HyperHEPA filter stage is the most advanced filter of its kind and can tackle molecules up to ten times smaller than machines equipped with standard HEPA technology.
