New Study Planned to Conclude More about Allergenic Ragweed

allergy-diseasesScientists have made newest and wonderful opinions in almost all the fields and the latest direction that they are planning to go towards is: future impact of global warming on allergic diseases.

Yes, soon we could hear some unexpected and new innovations of science blended with future because an international team of scientists including the University Of East Anglia (UEA) is almost ready to run a new study to assess the future impact of global warming on allergic diseases.

The study will be counted as the first of its own kind in the history of science. It will primarily focus on the spread of the invasive species Ambrosia Artemisiifolia or common ragweed. It is a known fact that the above plant's pollen is highly allergenic and it can easily cause hay fever, asthma and eczema.

Definitely Ragweed has not yet reached UK but concerns are rising higher because the problem in some aspects has made its start reaching many parts of mainland Europe via epidemic proportions.

According to the plans, the new project will run for a period of three years under which the scientists will try to explore what factors make rising temperatures worsen the serious health problems that are caused by ragweed.

The efforts will primarily concentrate on the research by increasing the amount of pollen that the plant actually produces; also the researchers will study the geographical distribution of the plant by stretching the pollen season.
