Palm Bay Ranks as One of the Worst Cities for Seasonal Allergies in 2023 Report
New Study by Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America Identifies Top Cities to Live in for People with Allergies
Palm Bay, Florida has been ranked as one of the top 20 worst cities for people with seasonal allergies in a new report by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) . The report, titled "2023 Allergy Capitals," evaluated 100 cities in the continental United States based on pollen scores, over-the-counter medication use, and the number of allergy specialists.
According to the report, Palm Bay ranks 16th on the list of the worst cities for people with allergies. This means that residents of Palm Bay are likely to experience higher levels of pollen, which can trigger allergies, and may require more frequent use of over-the-counter allergy medications.
The AAFA report also identifies the top 10 best cities to live in for people with allergies, which include:
Buffalo, New York
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Salt Lake City, Utah
The report notes that seasonal patterns and weather changes linked to climate change can impact the amount of pollen in the air, which could result in changes to how badly specific cities are impacted. The report also suggests that allergy season could start earlier and end later due to these changes.
As the spring season approaches, it's important for residents of Palm Bay to take steps to minimize their exposure to pollen and reduce their allergy symptoms. This can include staying indoors during peak pollen times, using air filters to reduce pollen in the home, and taking over-the-counter allergy medications as needed.
Overall, the AAFA report provides valuable information for people with allergies who are looking to move to a city with a lower risk of allergy symptoms. While Palm Bay may not be the best city for people with allergies, residents can take steps to manage their symptoms and enjoy all that the city has to offer.
With all the lot clearing being done no surprise there. All the pollen in the air as these trees are felled. All the mold spores from same activities. If we have to make top 20 list I guess it could be worse. Like most corrupt city in US?
