The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has declared May to be “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month” since 1984. It is said that May is a peak season for people with allergies and asthma, thus a perfect time to create awareness about these diseases and call for support.
More than 65 million Americans overall have asthma and allergies. Some people may have one or both of these conditions.
About 25 million Americans have asthma (20 million adults and 5 million children)
About 32 million Americans have food allergies (26 million adults and 6 million children)
About 24 million Americans have hay fever, rhinitis, or nasal allergies (19.2 million adults and 5.2 million children)
There is no cure for asthma or allergies.
