Portland-Area Allergy Sufferers Rejoice!

December 1st, 2010

If you suffer from fall allergies and you are lucky enough to live in Portland… then it’s time for you to celebrate because you just happen to live in the best city in the country for people with fall allergies! This latest addition to the why-Portland-is-the-greatest-city-in-the-world arsenal was recently published in a new study by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). The results were based on fall pollen counts, the amount of allergy medicine consumed, and the number of allergy specialists per capita. Portland was ranked the best city in the country for fall allergy sufferers, followed by Seattle (ha!), San Diego (eat it sun-lovers) and Sacramento. The worse place in the country to live was Dayton, OH. (Sorry Ohio…)
