Does being too clean make you sick

Post  pinhedz on Wed Jan 22, 2014 2:32 am

For some time researchers have speculated that asthma might be a consequence of too little exposure to germs during childhood.

Now they are saying that kids that grow up in clean households have more type-1 diabetes. Shocked

I have a friend with asthma, and I used to think it might have a psychological cause, because she was such a smothering mother. But she was also a very good housekeeper, so maybe she just kept the environment too germ-free.

In the olden days (when every family had 6 kids or more), mom would kick everybody out of the house and tell them to not come back before dinner unless they have broken bones or they have bleeding that won't stop by itself (" ... and when you come in, don't bleed on the carpet bounce ").

Of course we spent the day wallowing in every grody thing you can imagine.
