The Truth about Allergies
Experts worldwide all state that the House Dust Mite is the main cause of allergic conditions such as asthma, eczema, and allergic rhinitis.
The House Dust Mite thrives in every home, especially where central heating, double glazing and other insulating features combine to produce humid conditions. They occur in the greatest numbers in bedding, living on the flakes of skin shed by sleepers.
Experts state categorically that mites can accumulate in all types of bedding, whether it is synthetic or naturally filled. Indeed the best quality natural products - like Nimbus duvets and pillows - have such tightly woven cases that they actually help to keep out the dust mites.
This may be why research has shown that synthetic pillows hold three times more dust mite allergen than do down and feather pillows. And, in turn, that could explain why studies have shown that children using feather pillows were three times less likely to suffer wheezing attacks than those with synthetic bedding.
