Bring Back Germs

According to a NZ report published in the New England Journal of Medicine, children who suffer from asthma at an early age are less likely to outgrow the disease by adulthood. The figures are drawn from an ongoing study of the mental and physical health of 613 children born in Dunedin in 1972. Clean, modern living is a possible reason behind the marked increase of asthma in children in recent years; due to an abundance of antibacterial household products, children are exposed to fewer germs and have more sensitive immune systems as a result.
