Farm Dust Reduces Allergies in Children

A recent study shows that allergies in children are partly due to lack of healthy exposure.


| November/December 2015


Have you ever heard the saying, “A little dirt won’t hurt?” As it turns out, a little dirt may actually help. A recent study shows that children who grow up on dairy farms tend to have healthier immune systems and are less prone to allergies and asthma. In the study, using mice as subjects, scientists demonstrated how children who are not exposed to mold, pollen and animals common on a farm are more likely to suffer from allergies and asthma because their bodies did not become accustomed to dust and other allergens early in life.
