The National Asthma Council
Supporting Asthma Care
Dust mites are a major cause of asthma and allergies. Despite their tiny size, dust mites produce 10-20 waste particles per day! Talk about being regular! Each of these contains a protein known to trigger allergic reactions and asthma. If that weren’t bad enough, these proteins are so light that they float when disturbed and disperse into the air, ready for us to inhale.
Recent studies show that as much as 30% of the population are allergic to dust mite waste. (The rest of the 70% simply don’t like it!)
The National Asthma Council is a not-for-profit organisation working to improve health outcomes and quality of life for people with asthma.
In 1990, the Council was formed to combat the alarming number of deaths from asthma. Since then, this figure has fallen dramatically, with improved management of asthma.
Protect-A-Bed® works in partnership with the NAC's Sensitive Choice Program. This identifies our products as an item that may help to alleviate the triggers and symptoms of asthma. You’ll see the distinctive blue butterfly proudly displayed on our approved packaging.
