Knowledge, Media, Allergists, and the Impression they leave on the Public 
Today is a fine day in our city.
I have been interviewed by so much media this year due to the impact of El Niņo and the different type of outdoor allergy season we are having.

Interviews are really good since they get the message out there to the public and to the people that the subject matters to.

Now it is up to the interviewers to get the information from the right source and to present the information properly. This is something that too often is not done. Why would anyone, but a meteorologist, be a an authority about this weather that we have had this year. Why would anyone but a person with knowledge on the environment be an authority about this very unusual year unless they were educated and knowledgeable about the impact this is having on the environment. Well the same goes for the study of outdoor allergens.

Why would an allergist comment on this year's season when they have no knowledge of what is happening with outdoor allergens. Why would the media not go to the proper source to get their information. The pollen and mold season DO VARY a great deal from year to year.

Too often information is not provided by the right people on many topics and also the media may not portray the issue properly simply because of the way they present an interview. Perhaps they don't feel that the topic is sexy enough by being presented factually. WHO KNOWS.

We've had many media interviews this year. Many came to the right source, our company, which is the only one that has real data on outdoor allergens and knows the science that is involved in this area. It is a very important science since it tells us a great deal as to how trees, weeds and fungal spores are reacting to certain weather events or to climate change.

Many people depend heavily on the media as their source of information and it is important to them that they get the right information. So why not go to the proper source and present the information properly, for the GOOD of the people that this information is supposed to reach?

I have to mention one interview that I had this year, with CTV, and it was really well done -- both the interview itself as well as their presentation on the web and on television. They did an excellent job when they presented the information our company provided. Congratulations to CTV job well done from beginning to end.

I urge all media, pharmaceuticals, doctors, who deal with patients that suffer from seasonal allergies, to pay attention to what is really happening out there and to get the facts straight.

Allergies and asthma are extremely important to people's health and well being and also to the economy. If people and doctors stay informed, allergies will be treated with knowledge and information and not misconceptions. Come on everyone, get informed from the proper source.

This is presented with a view that is mine but with a deep sense of commitment to get the information right and to present it to the people who matter -- THE PUBLIC.
