Are allergy rates increasing because of global warming?

    It looks like in all likely hood that allergy rates will increase and the severity of allergies will be worse.  Global warming will create longer seasons for allergies.  Plants will create pollen earlier in the spring and allergens will last longer in the fall.  Also more air pollution, ozone, and more wildfires will help to aggravate more allergy problems.

    Not necessarily.  Though potential allergens might be increasing, like greenrobby89 said, allergies are caused by an overactive immune system.  In an environment that is too sterile, a child’s immune system might overreact to other substances that are normally not harmful.  Children might have a genetic tendency to develop allergies.
