100 Most Challenging Places for Asthma and Allergies

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) again cited Baltimore Maryland as one of the most challenging places to live for people with asthma or allergies. Baltimore ranks 80th in the 2013 list of Asthma Capitals and 73rd in the 2014 list of Allergy Capitals. The ASAP@GBMC has teamed with the AAFA Maryland-DC Chapter and the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology to provide free asthma screening and public education on how to reduce, recognize and respond to asthma attacks. Although asthma and allergies can be challenging conditions, they can certainly be controlled with the right approach.



Ford Focuses on Allergy with Fusion of Health and Technology

Pollen Magnified

Recognizing the impact of allergies and asthma, the American automaker has developed a way for drivers to check pollen counts while on the go. Drivers of vehicles equipped with the Ford SYNC AppLink can now use voice commands to have pertinent information be read to them and be displayed on the dashboard. The data generated by Pollen.com is aggregated by the Allergy Alert app, which takes into account the vehicle's location provided by a GPS receiver. More details about this development can be read in the announcement from Ford.


An Old Dog Tale That Keeps Going

The Washington Post published a story headlined "Hypoallergenic pets may be only a myth based on a study of 60 dog breeds." Researchers at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit found that the homes with so-called hypoallergenic dogs actually did not have lower levels of dog allergens compared to those with other breeds. Such stories should no longer be surprising. Dr. Sanico discussed common misconceptions about canine (and cat) allergens in a blog and an interview with the Baltimore Sun several years ago. Hopefully these articles can help temper the hype about non-existing hypoallergenic dogs. The good news is that pets could continue to provide joyful companionship instead of consternation, for those who choose to keep them, if successful strategies are applied.

Dr. Sanico was selected as a 2013 Top Doctor in a list published by the US News & World Report based on nominations submitted by other doctors and reviewed by the physician-led research team of Castle Connolly. Each year, they survey thousands of physicians and other healthcare professionals and ask them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and throughout the nation.
