More Serious Than Sneezing? High Pollen Linked to Death
- A new study shows that people are more likely to die from heart disease and
certain respiratory conditions on days with high pollen counts.
- Pollen is known to trigger allergies, but deaths related to this are
extremely rare and unable to account for the findings.
- Other studies have shown a similar increase in the death rate related to
air pollution, very warm weather, and very cold weather.
