What is a pollen count?
Pollen count is the measurement of the number of grains of pollen in a cubic meter of air. The higher the number, the more people will suffer if they are allergic to a particular pollen (hay fever).
Our pollen levels are on a scale of 12. Low is 0-3, Moderate is 4-6, High is 7-9, and Very High is 10-12. These levels take into account how much pollen the allergy sufferer is likely to be exposed to for that given period.
Pollen counting has been recognized as an important process since the turn of the 20th century. Not only have pollen counts advanced our knowledge of the role plant pollen plays in causing allergy, they have become a powerful tool just like accurate weather forecasts in day-to-day, individual health problem solving.
