Part of the reason I enjoy being by (or on) a large body of water. I never thought I had allergies till I started fishing off a pier in the Atlantic.

While out on the pier I felt great. Once I came off the pier and headed inland I became stuffed up.

DW would get sick in FL from the pine pollen. We both get sick inland TX near the sugar cane burns. Neither got sick in AZ, but then we never spent a whole winter there.

I've been to Beijing several times. Phoenix is not worse.

Lived in AZ nearly 20 years and have never met anyone with Valley Fever or AZ induced Asthma. As one who gets 5 allergy shots a week, I was sicker from my allergies from where I move 20 years ago! If you have or get Asthma, you can and will suffer from it in many other locations outside of AZ.

Some say almost anything to get a reaction. Do you really believe everything that "someone" says? I was in the Valley in the early 70s - when copper mines were running full bore and the sky was brown. No comparison. Does there get some times when an air alert is issued. Sure, but at no time is it anything like Beijing, nor LA of the late 60s, 70s.

Just to show No disrespect to Arizona, Valley Fever is in fact short for "San Joaquin Valley Fever"....commonly known as the birthplace and a very major contributor of the Fungus! Heck, my own introduction to it could have just as easily occurred in Bakersfield, where my brother lives.
