While most of us are familiar with grass pollen and how it triggers hay fever and asthma, researchers find ‘other’ pollen can actually be more abundant in the air
Today marks the end of this year’s epidemic thunderstorm asthma forecasting period.
Now the new year is here and 2022 has introduced itself to Canberrans - in albeit a fairly brusk way - its time for a quick update on the airborne pollen situation.
If you live in Canberra and don't suffer from hay fever or asthma then you should consider yourself to be very lucky this year! As the last days of 2021 see the grass pollen finally begin to decline we ask "Will there be any relief in January 2022"?
