Eating dirty things…

Let them eat dirt I say! The latest study shows that when infants are exposed dirty things in the first year of life are less likely to suffer from allergies, wheezing and asthma. We’ve always know that farm-raised kids have lower allergy and asthma rates because of regular exposure to microorganisms in farm soil. But the big key is expose your kids early in life for maximum benefit because later-than- infancy exposure brings increased asthma risk among city folk exposed to high levels of roach and mouse schtuff. The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology says infant exposure to bacteria and certain allergens help shape and train the child’s immune responses. In fact, infants growing up in homes with mouse and pet dander and cockroach droppings had lower rates of wheezing at age 3, compared with unexposed children. I’ve always said “an unchallenged immune system is a weak one”!

Doesn't even have to be clean dirt!
