In studies of what is called the hygiene hypothesis, researchers are concluding that organisms like the millions of bacteria, viruses and especially worms that enter the body along with “dirt” spur the development of a healthy immune system. Several continuing studies suggest that worms may help to redirect an immune system that has gone awry and resulted in autoimmune disorders, allergies and asthma.
Thank you! I think these psycho moms that won’t let their kids touch anything that hasn’t been washed twice with Purell are going to make their children more sick in the end. Dirt was a perfectly good snack for me growing up and it will be for my children too!
If we sanitize the world we sanitize ourselves, one little bug and the whole society is wiped out. Think early Europeans coming to the new world. We are creating diseases that are immune to our medicines, we are creating children who are “allergic” to everything under the sun including the sun itself.
Let them eat filth!
