Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America
What illness makes kids miss more school than any other, and what accounts for one quarter of all emergency room visits? Asthma. What do we spend an estimated $10 billion a year on? Non-medicinal products touted as being asthma and allergy friendly. But the fact is, until 2006, there was little to no regulation governing any claims made on these products. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America is the world’s oldest and largest non-profit asthma and allergy patient advocacy group in the world. Every day, AAFA helps support many millions of Americans dealing with asthma and allergies. In 2006 AAFA, along with top medical experts, created the asthma & allergy friendly™ Certification Program to help empower consumers like you to make informed purchase decisions with allergen-avoidance products. Watch as AAFA spokesperson, Michele Cassalia, explains how to allergen-proof your home.
