Farm Dust Reduces Allergies in Children
By Grit Staff
Have you ever heard the saying, “A little dirt won’t hurt?” As it turns out, a little dirt may actually help.

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.
