If you’re like me and millions of others, now is the time to start stocking up on Allergy medicine Spring is here and everything is starting to bloom. A recent survey suggests that Climate change may be the cause of more spring allergies reported across the U.S.

According to researchers at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health, human-induced climate change is changing when plants bloom and when spring begins. Ultimately, it’s leading to more seasonal allergies. Researchers found that areas, where the onset of spring was earlier than normal, had a 14% higher prevalence of hay fever,”

Associate Professor Amir Sapkota at the Maryland Institute says  “Surprisingly, we also found similar risk in areas where the onset of spring was much later than what is typical for that geographic location.”This study provided the first national data on how climate change can increase seasonal allergies.

Hay fever affects 25 million American adults and its treatment is costing people $11.2 million annually, according to the study.
