What is air pollution?

Air pollution is the top environmental risk to human health. It makes people more susceptible to respiratory infections and other illnesses and it can have a significant impact on those living with allergies.1

There is a proven link between the quality of the air we breathe and the health of people living with an allergic disease.1

Top tips on avoidance:1

  Where pollution is a trigger, avoid regular physical activity alongside high volume traffic roads or near other sources of combustion such as burning of wood or other materials.

  When pollen is a trigger, avoid activities and being outside on high pollen days, particularly during windy days and thunderstorms.

​​​​​​​  In choosing walking, biking or exercise routes, consider your potential exposure to traffic pollutants and, if you can, choose routes that take you away from polluted areas.
