Date:3/5/2008

- New Survey Shows How Allergies Take a Toll on Americans' Personal and

Professional Lives -

FT. WASHINGTON, Pa., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With the first day of spring only 15 days away, actress and entertainer Molly Shannon is teaming with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to launch the Allergies Are No Laughing Matter educational campaign. Molly and AAFA, with support from the makers of ZYRTEC(R), today introduced a new online Allergy Quiz to help Americans learn if they may have allergies, so they can laugh more and sneeze less this spring.

Known for her characters on "Saturday Night Live"* and movie roles including "Year of the Dog,"* Molly suffers from both indoor and outdoor allergies. "Allergies are not something I joke about, especially when I'm on the set with my animal co-stars or spending time with my kids," she says. "Before I learned how to control my allergy symptoms, it was really tough. I even avoided doing a lot of things I enjoyed because they triggered my allergies. I've teamed with AAFA, and the makers of ZYRTEC(R), to help other people like me. They can tackle their allergies, like I have, and not miss a beat this spring or all year long."

Allergies take a toll on Americans both personally and professionally, according to a new survey by Kelton Research, in which 50 percent of U.S. allergy sufferers said allergies negatively affected their work, and almost three out of 10 (27 percent) have missed an event, such as a wedding or party, because of their allergies. Hitting closer to home, one out of five (20 percent) people told a family member they couldn't get a dog or cat because of their allergies.

The educational campaign announced today includes a quick and simple online Allergy Quiz with educational allergy tips, available on http://www.AllergySavvy.com. By visiting the website, Americans can learn about alle
