Let them Eat Dirt!

http://freerangekids.wordpress.com/2009/02/08/let-em-eat-dirt/

 Accumulating evidence strongly suggests that eating dirt is good for you. 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. [Here’s the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/27/health/27brod.html?_r=1&em]

 

Add the fact that the majority of babies 6+ months old can safely eat peanut & shellfish products and other “allergens” and I’ll bet we can lower the rate of children with allergies in no time.   Eat a piece of shrimp, don’t wash with antibacterial soap, and viola!

Ahhh… reason #472 why anti-bacterial products are never in my house and why nothing is ever “sterilized” (i.e., baby bottles, pacifiers)…. lovin’ my healthy no-allergy kids! 😀
