May is National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month

 

Dear Constituents:

May has been dubbed National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month. While New York City is 43rd on the list of most challenging places to live for individuals with allergies and 48th on the list of most challenging places to live for individuals with asthma, there are still steps we can take to alleviate the suffering of those with seasonal sensitivities and asthma.

Allergies involve more than just pollen, however. Food allergies have become a constant part of our collective health concerns. The U.S. Food Allergy Labeling Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) now requires food labels to clearly identify all allergen ingredients (even if it's a spice or flavoring), and to discourage labels with ‘may contain' statements.
