Since 1984, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has declared May to be “National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month.” It’s a peak season for people with asthma and allergies, and a perfect time to educate patients, family, friends, co-workers and others about these diseases.
More than 60 million Americans overall have asthma and allergies.
About 26 million Americans have asthma (19 million adults and 6.2 million children)
About 32 million Americans have food allergies (26 million adults and 6 million children)
About 21 million Americans have hayfever, rhinitis or nasal allergies (20 million adults and 5.6 million children)
These numbers paint a picture of how many people in the U.S. are managing asthma and allergies. But they don’t paint a picture of the overall impact these diseases have on people and communities.
