More than half of United States citizens suffer from at least one allergy, a potentially harmful hyper-sensitivity to a specific substance, whether it is a pollen, food, drugs or material. The immune system controls how the body defends itself, creating reactions that can range from minor to life-threatening. Asthma is an allergic disease involving air restriction, leading to wheezing, coughing and shortness of breath. Allergies affect more than 50 million people in the United States, while about 23 million have been diagnosed by asthma, according to the American Lung Association, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
