Allergies on the rise

Identified as the world’s 4th most common chronic illness by the WHO (World Health Organisation), allergies are constantly on the rise. Nowadays, nearly 30% of the population is affected by allergies (compared to 3.8% in 1968). The cause? A combination of different factors like air pollution and the excessive use of chemicals in everyday life, as well as the presence of dust. The most common allergies (excluding food) are caused by pollen and dust mites which cause chronic rhinitis and asthma.

Dust mite invasion

Over 90% of the dust in our homes is made up of dust mites. These spider-like microorganisms set up shop in our living spaces because there they can find everything they need to thrive: an abundance of food, comfortable temperatures of above 19°C, and humidity. They live wherever there are dead skin cells, whether that be on bedding, stuffed animals, sofas, curtains, carpets or clothes. Continuous or regular contact with too large a quantity of dust mites creates a sensitivity which can lead to a full-blown allergy. Asthma, rhinitis, eczema, constant fatigue and lack of concentration are the most common symptoms.
Air pollution

Pollen toxicity

Rising air pollution has a direct impact on the global population of pollen allergy sufferers. This allergy can cause rhinitis, i.e. irritation of the nasal passages and repeated sneezing. Worsening air quality weakens the surface of the pollen grains, allowing the proteins responsible for allergies to emerge more easily. Children and young adults are particularly affected by this increase in pollen toxicity. Between 10 and 20% of the population develops symptoms of pollen allergy.
