Cat allergy – can I still have a cat?
Allergies are widely reported to be on the increase, and with pet allergies affecting approximately 10-20% of the world’s population, they are a substantial problem. Allergies tend to be categorized as either outdoor (such as pollens) or indoor (such as animals). Cats have been found to be the second most common cause of respiratory indoor allergies. There has been some recent research into cat allergies, with some encouraging results as to how to help people with this difficult and growing problem.
