A Little Dirt Will Do No Harm by Valerie Cheers Brown

Could it possibly be logical that germs could possibly help construct quality of life and help build immune strength?

According to an article: Antibacterial Puts You and Others at Risk, the Mayo Clinic states, “Antibiotics can be lifesavers, but misuse has increased the number of drug-resistant germs. See how this affects you and what you can do to help prevent antibiotic resistance.”

Could it be true that exposure to bacteria boosts the immune system?

Could living an overly extensive germ-free life be making you sick?

Is it about time for the full-scale war on microbes and/or bacteria to stop?

I know when growing up we played in dirt and ate too, and I am here to tell about it right now.

We did not have all the sickness that we have today and we did not have all the antibacterial and stuff.

Could the fumes or toxins from canned spray aerosols, incense, candles, cleaning products, etc. actually be making us sicker today?

I have seen people washing their hands with anti-bacterial and I feel we need to wash that off if you ask me?

It also dries the skin out and makes me itch badly and who wants to eat food after putting that stuff onto to their hands.

Not all microorganisms or bacteria cause sickness; like smallpox or tuberculosis. Truth be told, being exposed to microbes or bacteria from the get-go early in our in our lives is a fundamental stride in building up a sound resistant framework, as per analysts

This idea—known as the cleanliness speculation—is not new. A late review detailed in the journal Science,  however, indicated exactly what happens when you take cleanliness to the extraordinary extreme.

Researchers inspected two gatherings of mice, the initially presented to millions of microbes or bacteria and other tiny life forms or organisms that typically inhabit the world, and the other brought up in a germ-free space, similar to a sterile “bubble” for rodents. Mice brought up in the without germ environment had weaker resistant frameworks, alongside expanded aggravation in the lungs and colon, something that happens in individuals with asthma or bad tempered gut disorder. Being conceived in a sterile situation didn’t fate the mice to debilitated resistant frameworks everlastingly, however.

Exposing them to organisms normally found in mice empowered their invulnerable frameworks to increase to full quality. This exclusive happened that they were vaccinated amid the initial couple of weeks of their life. More seasoned without germ mice didn’t see similar advantages and weaker immune systems.

The analysts aren’t recommending that you should abandon routine cleanliness, for example, hand washing and immunizations. These means are still vital in shielding you from a portion of the more unsafe organisms or germs. Going to the extremes and overboard with hand sanitizers and cleaning items, in any case, may not help you.

Indeed, running or biking in the mud may be exactly what the doctor ordered to keep your invulnerable framework or immune system ready to rock and roll for its next battle.

I will never forget what my grandmother use to tell us, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
