I've heard that many people who suffer from pollen allergies move to LA since the climate doesn't come with seasons in the normal sense. Consequently the pollen levels (if any) are down to a minimum all year round. Is this really true?

I've also, heard that regarding colds, people are pretty much spared from this nuisance in LA, also because of the non-existent seasonal changes that one finds elsewhere. Is this true too or does all the airconditioning do a good job of making people attract colds anyway?

People get colds all the time here. Colds are spread by being close to other people. Contrary to what people in the rest of the country might believe, people in SoCal still spend most of their lives indoors surrounded by other people at work and at home.

Allergies are better than places like the Midwest because there's not a whole lot of natural green out here. What natural landscape is left, is mostly short desert bushes. But different people are allergic to different things and plenty of people (myself included) have had allergies at various points in their lives.

Just curious where you got your information? There are so many varieties of allergies such as grasses, trees,mold,dust,pollen,smog, and rag weed to name a few. Colds have absolutely nothing to do with seasons. It's about bacteria or viruses.
