Fruit and Christmas Trees
Anytime individuals bring a natural item such as flowers or a plant into their home, they should understand some pollen could be coming in with it. The same idea is connected with fruit and Christmas trees. Since fruit is a natural item it more than likely has pollen attached to it, so it is important for individuals to wash fruit as soon as they bring it home from the grocery store or farmer's market. Christmas trees also produce pollen, so for those who like to enjoy a real tree for the holidays, they should be aware of the potential allergen they are introducing as well. Unfortunately, those with severe allergies may want to choose a fake tree, or at the very least stick to a small tree to minimize its effect on their symptoms.
