Abstract: Recently, the prevalence of allergic disease increased rapidly. Common allergic diseases mainly include allergic rhinitis,allergic asthma and eczema. Clinical symptoms seriously affect the patients’ quality of life. Currently, some studies have defined the relation between indoor air pollutants and allergic diseases as well as that between diet and allergic diseases. The potential pathogenesis has become hotspot in recent years. This paper reviews the impact of several main indoor air pollutants and diet to allergic diseases. Potential mechanism also be elaborated in this review.

Key words: Diet, Air pollutants, Indoor, Allergy, Etiology
