Lately Experts have recommended the allowing of children to sucking their hands. Well study shows that it helps in avoiding allergies such as dust mites, grass, animals or airborne fungi.
The theory states that the exposure to small doses of microbes and bacteria in early life, helps the immune system to improve itself, and away from a tendency to get allergies. The research states partially, that, sterile environments are not actually ideal for us. Parents should not allow their kids to “roll around in dirt”, but they could loosen up about cleanliness, study authors believe.
Sometimes, children in daycare, who live on farms, with pets, or have older siblings, are exposed to higher levels of germs. Paradoxically, in small doses, these germs provide some sort of protection from allergies.
Experts don’t recommend lack of hygiene, but what they do encourage is not overdoing it. Children who are brought up only in aseptic environments apparently have more chances for developing immune system induced skin reactions like asthma, eczema, and allergies.
Might sound funny, but as a parent will you allow you children suck their hands?
