Think Science: Allergies

May 6, 2019

Ah-choo! If there’s one thing we can all get behind in South Texas, it’s our hatred of allergies. For many, the sneezing and wheezing that comes with “cedar fever” is an annoyance, but for some people, allergies are a serious health issue. Allergies can be triggered by food, pollen, dander… all manner of substance that come into contact with our bodies.

This Think Science event, recorded on May 17, explains why we develop some allergies, as well as tips for prevention (in early life) and treatment. Listen to or download the audio from the player below, and follow along with the slides.
