Environmental pollution is the main cause of allergies: Tijuana is among the most affected cities

Pollution has made Tijuana citizens have more allergy problems than in previous years

An allergist visit is something that is becoming more and more relevant in Tijuana due to the air pollution that has been constantly increasing due to a variety of factors. One of these is the excessive use of cars which is why more people are reported as having allergies that can range from mild to unbearable.

According to information shared by the former Director of Environmental Management and Impact of the Subsecretariat of Environmental Protection, Saúl Guzmán García, in July 2021, the highest percentage of nitrogen oxide pollution comes from fumes caused by the use of transportation vehicles.

In addition, the city has been monitoring air quality and has been emitting red alerts warning the population to avoid all outdoor activities. Unfortunately, as the information revealed, these monitoring units lack the budget to continue operating as they should.

This has caused Tijuana citizens to have more allergy problems than in previous years and, sadly, the youngest people are the most affected. In fact, in Mexico this condition is considered a public health issue as one of the main causes of hospital morbidity and pediatric emergencies.
