Climate change could cause new hay fever misery for millions of people across Europe – according to a new report from the University of East Anglia in collaboration with several European institutes.

Research published today reveals that the number of people suffering hay fever from ragweed pollen could double in just 35 years. Researchers believe climate change will be responsible for two thirds of this increase.

Higher ragweed pollen concentrations and a longer ragweed pollen season may also increase the severity of ragweed symptoms, with populations across most of Europe likely to be affected in the next 35 years.
