Wed 7/31/13 Noon &7PM More people are suffering from hay fever, food allergies, asthma and eczema than ever before. Allergic diseases are on the rise, and doctors aren't exactly sure why.

We'll learn a little more about what we do know about allergies, with Dr. Betsy Jaffe from Timber Lane Allergy and Asthma Associates and Dr. Kay Hillinger from Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinic.

We'll also find out about the ProXCT Mountain Bike finals at Catamount Outdoor Center in Williston. For the first time, female racers will be given equal billing to the male racers.
