American Mothers Seriously Concerned About Childhood Allergies, Siemens Survey Reveals
Date:7/20/2009

The survey of over 1,000 U.S. mothers is part of a Siemens health initiative to raise awareness about this growing epidemic in America.

Research indicates that this is a critical step to aiding long-term quality of life. Early identification has been shown to facilitate prompt and effective treatment, and therefore help prevent the progression of allergies to asthma -- a disease associated with significant economic costs, health risks and even morbidity and mortality.(3)

"If allergies go untreated, there is a higher probability that the child wil
