Allergic Rhinitis Ebook

Hay Fever and Allergies

This eBook addressed the real causes of seasonal allergies like hay fever and other irritating health problems, and provides more informed solutions based on recent research into how to stop allergies at the system level. It doesn't take much now to be able to get rid of allergies, without having to see a doctor, pay huge medical and pharmaceutical bills, or fill your body with chemicals that do more harm than good to your system. However, if you are a doctor or run a clinic of any kind, you can learn things that you can apply to your own clinic to provide maximum benefit to you and your patients. Keep yourself informed with real research! When you find the underlying causes of allergic rhinitis (the medical term for hay fever) you will be far more informed on how to fight this in your own body. Take the natural way to heal yourself!

My Hay Fever and Allergies Review

Highly Recommended

I've really worked on the chapters in this ebook and can only say that if you put in the time you will never revert back to your old methods.

Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Potential Occupational Risk

Regulatory frameworks exist to address vital issues related to food safety and environmental protection in regard to GMO applications. However, little research or regulatory oversight currently exists addressing the potential impact of genetically modified engineered crops on the health and safety of agricultural workers. Some studies have evaluated the health effects of Bt in agricultural workers. In a public health survey, a large number of individuals were exposed to a massive Bt pesticide spraying program. Some of the symptoms reported included rash and angioedema. One of the spray workers developed dermatitis, pruritus, swelling, and erythema with conjunctival injection. Bt was cultured from the conjunctiva in this case. In 1992 the use of Bt as part of an Asian gypsy moth control program was associated with symptoms of allergic rhinitis, exacerbations of asthma, and skin reactions among individuals exposed to the spraying operations. However, no follow-up was performed to...

Allergies and Allergic Sensitization

In European studies, children of farmers are at decreased risk of developing allergic sensitization. Factors explaining this decrease include early exposure to animals, including livestock and pets. In a study conducted in New Zealand, children living on farms were found to have an increased prevalence of allergic symptoms but not of skin-prick positivity. Weekly consumption of yogurt was associated with decreased risk of hay fever and allergic rhinitis, and consumption of unpasteurized milk was associated with decreased risk of atopic dermatitis and eczema (9-13).

Pathophysiology and Genetics

Plant-borne asthma and respiratory tract allergies are by definition caused by inhalation of the allergen. However, some allergens such as pollens can cause rhinitis after exposure through the conjunctiva of the eye severe rhinitis can lead to conjunctivitis. Rhinoconjunctivitis is a common indicator of an allergy that is usually IgE-mediated, involving irritation and inflammation of the mucosa, with increased interleukens identified in nasal discharge. Ragweed (and all hayfever) allergies are activated by Type I hypersensitivity reactions. Asthma symptoms that are due to plant-borne disease are also IgE-mediated and identified by the sine qua non symptoms wheezing and shortness of breath typical of any type of asthma. Both plant-borne asthma and allergic rhinitis are stimulated by organic dusts, pollen, or plant particles (8).

Plants Causing Asthma andor Rhinitis

Perhaps the best known cause of allergic rhinitis. Several agricultural plant species have crossreactive proteins with group I, IV, and IX allergens, and thus it is highly likely that a worker would be allergic to all of them. The cross reactive crops are barley, corn, rye, triticale, oats, canola, and sunflower pollens. These allergies, along with ragweed, are often given the nonspecific name of hay fever (4,5).

Epidemiology of Human Populations Exposed to Aerial Bt Sprays

In January, 2002, another Bt (Foray 48B) spray program was initiated in the Auckland area of New Zealand to control the painted apple moth (Teia anartoides), a serious invasive pest of many tree species. A group of 181 volunteers self-reported any changes in how they viewed certain aspects of their health before and after the spray program was initiated.87 Following spraying, many respondents reported increases in various health criteria, such as diarrhea, irritated throat and itchy nose, and stomach problems. However, most residents reported no health problems and, importantly, there were no relevant increases in visits to various health care providers. This study should be considered flawed because it used only a self-reporting group that lacked appropriate controls, and included many individuals with self-identified health problems such as hay fever, asthma, and other allergies. The authors of this study also made the mistake of associating the occurrence of Bt spores with...
