The latest medical news for people with allergies and food sensitivities.
A recent study examined how thunderstorms can provoke asthma attacks even in those without a history of asthma (but with hay fever or pollen allergy). Thunderstorms have been associated with asthma outbreaks, particularly during pollen season. The first reported case was in 1983. Since then, asthma epidemics due to thunderstorms have occurred in Australia, the U.K., Italy, the United States and other places around the world.
