Health Watch -- Holiday Tip #3 - Evergreens
Health Watch is a Public Service of the Office of News and Publications and is intended to provide general information only and should not replace the advice of a medical professional. You should contact your physician if you have questions about any of these topics.
Even the trees that don't pollinate could be a problem if they bring mold and fungus inside with them. UT Southwestern allergists say just about anything from the outdoors is likely to contain mold spores, which are a common allergen. The best bet for an allergy sufferer is probably an artificial tree that's stored so it stays dust-free.
Health Watch is heard Monday through Friday nationwide on the "Stardust" format of ABC Satellite Radio. Call your local radio station and ask if they carry the program.
