My son 31, got eosinophils of 7.9% six month back and 7.6% today. Could this be due to exposure to traffic and second hand cigarettes smoke?

In brief: Eosinophils

Elevated eosinophils are usually caused by allergies.
Parasitic infections have also been known to cause elevations in eosinophils. Environmental pollutants are a possible but less likely cause.
