The Facts And Figures About AllergiesAs I see more and more people, especially children, around me suffering from allergies or allergy related conditions I decided to look online for some allergy facts and figures.

I would like to share what I found and to let you know that you and your family don’t have to be one of these statistics. Read to the end to find out why.

Take a look at these allergy facts from www.allergy magazine.com:

1) One in three of the UK population now has an allergy and it is rising at 5% a year.

2) There is only one consultant allergist per two million population: “Allergy Services in the NHS are totally inadequate and cannot cope with the rising amount and increasing severity of allergy in the UK,” says a new report by the Royal College of Physicians.

3) Asthma, rhinitis, and eczema have increased in incidence two to three fold in the past 20 years.
