Update: See the 2007 report
_Today the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that this spring may be the worst on record for allergy sufferers. The Atlanta Allergy & Asthma Clinic recorded the second-highest pollen count since it began measuring the irritants in 1995–and several grasses have not even started producing pollen yet.
The pollen allergy season is hitting hard and early this year because of the unusually warm winter. Dr. Lisa Kobrynski, a pediatric allergist at Emory University, said pollen counts in Atlanta and South Georgia are ‘highest of any area in the United States.’
