Germs are not so bad after all!

Posted on: March 13, 2010


Parents! Are you obsessed with your child’s cleanliness??? Well don’t be….because children who are overly clean will have very low immune system in the future!

An article on cnn.com reports that germs that many parents disinfect might help build children’s immunity and fight allergies and asthma later. Some experts are beginning to believe that too much cleanliness might be a contributing factor to the increase of allergies in the past 15 years and studies of of babies in households with pets or in day care have found that they have fewer allergies later.

Me, I vote for a little more dirt. Leave ’em filthy and hope that 30 years from now their hearts will thank you. Not only is it time tested, but it means I can avoid my vacuum cleaner for one more day.
