Modern Society's Obsession With Cleanliness Interfering With Body's Immune Function.
Is modern society becoming germ-phobic? Evidence shows being too clean could be damaging to immune system and health.
The sprays and gels normally used, which contain toxic components themselves, kill not only the "bad" bacteria but the good, as well.
This is causing a breakdown in the proper function of the immune system, which requires a balance of good and bad bacteria. Bad, or so called unfriendly, bacteria is necessary as the immune system must be challenged at times in order to maintain peak efficiency.
It appears as though a little dirt, which children are normally drawn to when they are young, is a good thing for them. From a young age, the immune system is 'taught' by day to day exposure to nature, what is normal and what it should be prepared to fight against.
If it sees that all bacteria is bad, the defence systems activate. This actually causes over-sensitivities to things people encounter every day. Allergies in children have seen a marked increase in recent years.
Research focusing on the effects of the Hygiene Hypothesis, which is what this phenomenon has been labeled, show children who grow up in cultures or environments that are not as sterile, experience less illness and are not as susceptible to allergic reactions. Autoimmune disorders are on the increase, as well. Asthma in children has become epidemic in many industrialized countries.
Adults, too, have been affected. The increase in autoimmune diseases, including digestive disorders, Asthma, Type 1 Diabetes, MS to name a few, is too significant to ignore.
"We have been fed a constant stream of advertising telling us that all bacteria is bad and that we must avoid being exposed to any." says Victoria Playfair of Savi Wellness Products, a company who sell a top rated probiotic supplement, "Our company is convinced that we must now begin to add bacteria back into our bodies in the form of probiotics and fermented foods.
Our obsession with clean has become hazardous to our health."
