If spring’s tree pollens are making your eyes water, 
 you’re in good (if miserable) company. “Up to 30 percent of Americans have allergies, compared to 10 percent in 1970,” 
 says Leo Galland, M.D., an internist in New York City and coauthor of The Allergy Solution. Numerous studies connect the increase to climate change (extended growing seasons mean more pollens), air pollution (people in high-traffic areas 
have a higher incidence of respiratory allergies), and everyday substances in our homes, like antibacterial products and formaldehyde. Here are some smart ways to minimize the effects of these stealth triggers and shore up your immunity so you can feel healthy year-round.
