According to the people surveyed, the main reason for the development of allergies is poor ecology. Other causes include poor product quality, a genetic predisposition, and a malfunctioning immune system.
Researchers also managed to find out that 66% of those who complain of allergies to plants use antiallergic drugs, and 31% try to monitor cleanliness in the home and workplace. Every fifth participant in the study with an allergy to plants is observed by the doctor and follows his recommendations, and every sixth tries not to go outside and as little as possible contact with the environment.
Respondents are also allergic to drugs, dust and various food products and to pets.
The survey was conducted on May 16, 2019 among 1,600 Russians aged 18 and over.
If you suspect an allergy, you should consult a doctor who will prescribe studies and, if necessary, competent therapy. Allergen-specific immunotherapy is the only treatment so far that affects the very cause of the disease, and after the termination of therapy, the symptoms of the disease do not resume.

But water, the specialist notes, is the best option in hot weather. And the more you drink it, the better. Carbonated and sugary drinks should be discarded.
