Kids Playing With Dirt Have Stronger Immune System: Study
Dirt is not bad as many parents think in terms of keeping the kids in healthy environment. Co-author of book ‘Dirt is Good: The Advantage of Germs for Your Child’s Developing Immune System,’ Jack Gilbert, said most of the exposures towards germs are actually beneficial for the younger ones as it stimulates the immune system and make it stronger too.
In one of his interviews recently he briefed some below important tips for parents:
– Many parents keep the children away from getting dirty and sterilize hands with antiseptic wipes after playing in mud and after pet animals licks their face. However, it is fine to wash hands if there’s a flu virus around.
– Hot, soapy water is good and mild warm, soapy water too is fine. It damages less to overall health of the child.
– The five-second rule does not exist as microbes take milliseconds to attach to a sticky piece of food. However, just try not to drop in an area that could be high risk of dangerous pathogens.
– A study finds if parents licked the dropped pacifier and then again put it back, the kids develop less eczema, less asthma and less allergies. It helps in making stronger health.
– These days we live indoors and one super sterilized surfaces. This makes immune systems hyper-sensitized and as a result the little soldier cells in body, neutrophils, spend too looking for something to do. They thereafter become grumpy as well as pro-inflammatory. When they something foreign suddenly, even a piece of pollen, they go crazy becoming highly inflammatory. This triggers eczema and asthma.http://www.dailynewsz.com/kids-playing-with-dirt-have-stronger-immune-system-study/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Kids-Playing-With-Dirt-Have-Stronger-Immune-System-Study.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Kids-Playing-With-Dirt-Have-Stronger-Immune-System-Study-300x300.jpgHealthgerms,immune system
