Clean – the key to disease

Everything is fine, including cleanliness in the house. American scientists came to the conclusion that if young children do not need to be protected from dirt and microbes, then in the future it can turn into allergy and asthma.
Parents instinctively protect children from any dangers, including from microbes. Although nature does not overeat, and the process of birth and the beginning of feeding is designed in such a way that the necessary microflora will necessarily fall into the infant’s body. And then begins the process of knowing the world and adapting to it, including through microbes. Our obsession with cleanness leads to the fact that a person loses natural protection – a microflora that suffers from antibiotics, disinfectants and household chemistry, and as a result violates the harmonious functioning of the immune system. This does not mean that you should stop washing your hands before eating, but if you want to minimize the chances of your children becoming asthmatic and allergic, you should not lose sight of the fact that the dog licked a sleeping baby. Maybe in the future it will save him from unpleasant diseases.
Massachusetts University experts found that those whose childhood was mildly sanitized are much less susceptible to allergies and asthma.
Earlier studies have shown that among children who grow on farms, allergies and asthmatics are much less than among the indigenous inhabitants of the stone jungle. Published recently in the journal Allergy and Clinical Immunology, results from Johns Hopkins Center for Children’s Studies show that if a child first faces strong allergens and different microorganisms at an early age, then the likelihood that it will become asthmatic and an allergic person is reduced.
“Our research shows that the time of first contact is important. This means that many immune responses are formed in the first year of life, as well as many allergens and bacteria stimulate and teach the immune system, “says Dr. Woodrow Robert. Experts have been watching 467 children from Baltimore, New York and St. Louis for 3 years. Scientists have been researching children, parents, homes and their surroundings to detect different allergens and bacteria. The level of allergen-specific immunoglobulins for milk, eggs, peanuts and red cockroaches, and after two and three years – for dust mites, cats, dogs, mice and fungal allergens were measured daily.
It turned out that children who grew up in homes where mice, cats and cats live, were up to three years healthier than their peers who were deprived of such contacts. Children who had contact with all three allergens were more resistant to allergies than those who had one or two. If you translate everything into figures, then up to three years, 51% of the children who had been cleansed had allergic problems, and only 17% of those who grew up with cats, mice and mice.
It is clear that the four-and six-foot residents of the house – this is an additional source of bacteria. But, oddly enough, those who grew up in homes with the highest bacterial background were the most healthy: only 8% suffered from asthma or allergies. While in almost sterile houses the class was above the number of allergists and asthmatics, accounting for 41%.
According to statistics, about 5-7% of adults and up to 10% of the children’s population suffer from asthma. Approximately half of the cases occur for the first time to 10 years, and in the second half – up to 40 years. In families where mother and father are healthy, the likelihood of asthma in a child is 20%, which is considered normal. . When there are adult asthma in the family, this risk increases to 80%. If the conclusions of American scientists are true, this can be explained not only by heredity, but also by the fact that asthmatics minimize contact with animals and give much more attention to cleaning the house.
