10 Worst Cities for Fall Allergies

1. Knoxville, TN
Score: 100.00

It seems that in America everybody is allergic to something! Could it be that the doctors are over diagnosing allergies so they can make more money from giving out shots etc?
I think you guys over medicate!

I loved the way the dog talked as well as his human!
