New Zealand has the second highest asthma rate in the world (after the UK) according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). One in six adults and one in four children in New Zealand suffer from asthma symptoms, which can be further aggravated by allergies. And when it comes to allergies; up to one in three New Zealanders will develop allergies at some time in their life. Meantime, it’s estimated that 70% of all Kiwi homes are inadequately insulated. Coincidence? We think not.
