Males are more sensitive to allergens such as dust, pollen, food products, and fungi, and therefore, more prone to respiratory allergies like asthma, compared with females, finds a survey by SRL Diagnostics. The survey showed that dust has the biggest allergic reactions in men (65.48 per cent) than women (49.39). Further, men were also found to have the highest reactions to allergens like pollens, wheat, mold/ fungi, grass and even insects like cockroach, than women. Moreover, young adults, those below 30 years, were observed to suffer more from allergen reactions than older adults.
