Findings in this recent research might leave one stunned and why not? The rule and precaution, which was being followed for the past several decades, have been explained to be a myth.
Researchers suggest that being too hygienic is even not good for the health of children. Results of the study carried out by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, proposed that the toddlers, who were low in bacterial levels, were prone to be affected by eczema and asthma.
Researchers have recommended that children should be subjected to more germs and bacteria, so that they are able to develop higher immunity levels.
When Jack was born to Christine Burgess, he was suffering from eczema. His skin would become dry and then flake off, become red and ultimately bleed. Till date, he is wet dressed.
Figures suggest that an estimated 20% of Australian children have to be treated of skin conditions like that suffered by Jack. Rather, in a few cases, it is worse.
Associate Professor Mimi Tang from the Murdoch Children's Research Institute emphasized that exposure to bacteria, was the only remedy for such kids suffering from eczema.
Tang said, "There are 10 times more bugs in our guts than there are human cells. The intestinal bugs that first colonize our intestines play a really important role in programming our immune responses".
