Plants Causing Asthma andor Rhinitis

Often the same identified type of stimuli may cause rhinitis in one person and asthma in another. Pollens and organic dusts including endotoxins, bacteria, glucans, insect parts, grain mites, mold or mycotoxins from fungi, and aerosolized and respirable dust from the plant product or pure plant material are the sources of virtually all plant-borne causes of rhinitis and asthma. Several years ago it was questioned as to whether grain dust asthma really existed, but this was primarily attributed to the fact that the composition of grain dust is so complex that identification of a specific antigen is difficult despite clear positive responses to dust inhalation challenge and skin testing. Grain dust has been found to significantly increase symptoms of cough, sputum, wheezing, and shortness of breath. However, these problems were found to be more severe in smokers (1,2,3). perhaps the best known cause of allergic rhinitis. Several agricultural plant species have crossreactive proteins...

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).

Pesticide Exposure and Respiratory Health

Although there are few animal and human studies in the literature on this subject, exposure to pesticides in the course of agricultural activities can produce a range of respiratory illnesses including irritant-induced asthma and persistent wheeze. Case reports also exist regarding the respiratory health effects of pesticides in occupational cohorts exposed to organophosphates or paraquat. For example, depressions in acetylcholinesterase levels were found in Kenyan farmers exposed to organophosphate pesticides. A case series observed the development of persistent irritant asthma in individuals exposed to methylisothiocyanate during a metam-sodium pesticide spill in the Sacramento River in California. A study of grain farmers in Ohio found that increased cough was associated with mixing and applying pesticides more frequently. Among Iowa farmers, increased phlegm and wheeze was associated with insecticide application to animals, even after controlling for the animal exposures...

Exposure to Mold and Mycotoxins

The medical literature is sparse in regard to mold exposures and respiratory illness in agricultural workers. Sources of mold dust exposure in agricultural areas include hay, grain, silage, and bedding. Baled hay and straw have been found to contain and liberate the largest amounts of microbes such as mesophilic bacteria, xerophilic fungi, mesophilic fungi, thermotolerant fungi, and thermophilic actinomycetes. Hay, except when dried in storage, liberates great numbers of fungal spores (139).

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).

Prevention and Management

Occupational asthma is generally well controlled with the beta-adrenergics and steroid inhalants common to treatment of all types of asthma. In cases of acute exacerbation unresponsive to increases of inhaled medication, oral steroids (for example starting at 40 to 60 mg per day of prednisone) with decreasing dosage over 6 to 10 days is typically used. Rhinitis symptoms are

Plants Causing Dermatitis

Although pollen from Compositae family, Ambrosia genus, like ragweed is well known to induce rhinitis, skin contact is required for dermatitis (with the exception of feverfew which can cause dermatitis by pollen or plant material). The common members of this family causing dermatitis include short, low, or common ragweed and Roman wormwood (A. artmisiaefolia) (the most ubiquitous, and a high sensitizer), western ragweed (A. coronopifolia), great, tall, or high ragweed (A. aptera), lance-leaved ragweed (A. bidentata), false ragweed (A. acanthicarpa), or Hooker's gaertneria (Franseria acanthicarpa). Dermatitis caused by ragweed can be seen throughout the growing season (spring through fall). It causes a widespread sensitivity reaction on exposed skin surfaces, mimicking photodermatitis. The allergen can be contacted directly from the plant, fomites, or airborne (most common). Other plants within this highly allergenic family include lichens (symbiotic algae and fungi) that are usually...

Clinical Signs and Symptoms

In humans only a few cases have been documented, and two thirds of those had a respiratory illness with severe flu-like signs and symptoms. Two out of three cases in humans resulted in death, one died from acute respiratory illness and one from an encephalitis. In horses, respiratory disease characterized by dyspnea, vascular endothelial damage, and pulmonary edema may occur. Nervous signs may also occur. Following experimentally induced infections, cats and guinea pigs have developed fatal respiratory illness (21,22).

Convention on Biological Diversity and loss of genetic diversity

For example, plum C, a shrub found in abundance in remote parts of Africa, is used to cure the common cold. Unlike in developed nations, plants available in abundance are rarely subjects of sale in developing nations. The neem tree, which is commonly available in India, is used for its benefits. But its sapling, seeds and leaves are never sold. Each of these possesses commonly known and used medicinal traits. Thus, plum C may be known and used in Africa for several years. It is unlikely that Africans would protect plum C due to the following reasons

Organic Dusts

Work in dairy barns is also related to respiratory illness. Hay and preserved grasses or corn (silage) are generally used to feed cows in dairy barns and may be a significant source of organic dust exposure to varying degrees based on the mechanism of preparation and storage. Rates of allergic alveolitis were found to be high in workers exposed to hay in small, tightly closed barns. Increased respiratory symptoms have been observed in workers in Finland who shake out hay to feed cows in dairy barns. Another source of exposure in the barn is the bedding chopper, which uses a series of rotating blades to cut bales of hay into smaller lengths, which are then blown into animals' stalls to serve as bedding. This practice can aerosolize hay and create significant amounts of respirable dust (44,45). genic and proinflammatory. Endotoxin from gram-negative bacteria has been particularly found to be an important causative agent in producing respiratory illness. Recent insights into the innate...


A study comparing respiratory symptoms of European (n 7188) and Cali-fornian (N 1939) farmers over the last year found 12.7 of the Europeans and 23.9 of the Californians suffered from rhinitis in the last year. In the past year, 2.8 of the European farmers and 4.7 of the Californian farmers suffered from asthma. Table 26.1 summarizes which crop was more associated with which disease (not all crops had sufficient numbers for Rhinitis evaluation). Cotton farming was more highly associated with rhinitis than any other crop, though nut, fruit berry, and grain crops were associated with a statistically significant increase in risk, and flowers were almost statistically significant in their association. Asthma was most statistically associated with flower crops, although grain crops were not evaluated, a mild association was found between root crops and asthma. The table even suggests that vegetable farming is associated with significantly less rhinitis and asthma. Though not included in...


Exposure to cotton dust causes acute and chronic respiratory illness. Byssinosis is the acute chest tightness and or shortness of breath that initially occurs on the first day of work following a weekend. Those affected are workers who prepare fibers for spinning. It eventually progresses to affect workers on all working days and ultimately causes a permanent decrease in ventilatory capacity. The same symptoms are associated with the processing of flax, hemp, and sisal for textiles. Early stage periodicity is the best way to distinguish it from asthma and other obstructive airway diseases (31,32,33).

Swine Influenza

This viral infection is thought to have been responsible for the worldwide pandemic that caused an estimated 40 million deaths in 1918 to 1919. During this epidemic, pregnancy was associated with a high mortality rate of over 50 if pneumonia was present. Since this pandemic, reports of swine influenza cases have been rare, with only sporadic case reports of human illness in the United States, Europe, and Russia. There is a case report of a previously healthy pregnant woman who acquired swine influenza while visiting a swine barn at a county fair. The swine were reported to exhibit influenza-like symptoms. The infection resulted in maternal respiratory failure and death, but the infant survived and was asymptomatic. There is no increase in influenza morbidity and mortality among pregnant women during non-pandemic years. Based on the few case reports and historical information from the swine flu pandemic of 1918, pregnant women are advised to avoid contact with swine that exhibit signs...
