Allergies And an Aloe Vera Plant!
It is the fact taht more people than ever before are suffering from allergies, asthma and related raspiratory diseases.
Allergies have a genetic component so if one parent suffers, there is a 1 in 3 chance each child will suffer. If both parents suffer, the chances increase to 7 in 10 that each child will suffer from allergies. The most common causes of indoor pollutants triggering allergies are pet dander, mold spores, dust mites, and cockroaches. Emissions from these sources produce toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and ammonia that trigger allergic reactions.
Dr. B. C. Wolverton, a noted NASA scientist, says most experts now agree that indoor air pollution may actually be as much as ten times more polluted than the outdoors. Dr. Wolverton points out that plants, even though some of their pollens trigger allergies, are the lungs of the earth - producing oxygen, cleaning the air, and neutralizing pollution by filtering toxins.
According to Dr. Gloria Gilbere, N.D., D.A.Hom., Ph.D., there are several plants that when placed in problem areas like the bedroom, are helpful in reducing indoor air pollution and therefore helping those that have allergies easier overcome problems they are dealig with.
Some of these plants are:

Bamboo Palms and Lillies - reduce many toxic materials
Spider Plants - are exceptional for eliminating formalhehyde toxins in the air
English Ivy - controls toxic emissions from petroleum-based products
Chinese Evergreen - reduce many toxic materials Therefore, get your **s to the local plant store and get a plant of aloe vera or couple of them and in addition get some other plants listed above that will help clean the air in your home, that will make you and your family feel better.
