Allergies and Trees: True or False?

A few days ago, newspaper articles talked about a new "study" done by some allergy doctors that showed having a farm-grown Chrismtas Tree raised levels of mold spores in a home. I put the word study in quotes because legitimate scientists would not consider what they had done a study.

Recently we received a report from six scientists calling their data "not supported by sound science due to shortcomings in the experimental design." This is yet another example of how the news media doesn't do enough homework before putting articles out.
