Dust Mites Make People Vulnerable to All Allergens
Posted by Craig on Friday, September 29, 2006
According to Yahoo! News, a new study to be published in Investigative Dermatology concludes that an enzyme in dust mite feces destroys the protective barrier of the skin, leaving it vulnerable to other allergens and irritants.

Toshiro Takai of the Atopy (Allergy) Research Center in Tokyo explains, "In a healthy person, the barrier is complete and irritants can't get into the skin. But partial disruption of the barrier facilitates passage of allergens and other irritants."

This study proves that dust mite allergen is a big problem for people who suffer from any type of allergy, including skin allergies and asthma.

The referenced article also points out that, according to the World Health Organization, asthma affected 300 million people worldwide in 2005, killing 255,000, and experts expect asthma deaths to increase by 20 percent over the next decade.
