Bed Dust May Help Boost Child Health
New study by researchers at University of Copenhagen has shown that exposure to micro organisms found in bed dust may help reduce child’s risk of developing asthma, allergies and autoimmune disease later in life. The researchers analysed dust samples from the beds of 577 infants before comparing them with respiratory samples from 542 children. It was found that the bacteria in both the environments affect each other and hence prove to have an impact on reducing asthma and allergy risks in later years. A high diversity of microorganisms in the home contributes to the development of a child’s resistance to a host of diseases and allergies.
