Kids need dirt 2 – asthma.

Professor Raina M Maier found that asthma in young children is linked to bacteria in household dust, and that these bacteria are influenced by whether the child attends daycare and dogs and cats in the household.

The team sampled homes in Tucson, Arizona and compared the bacteria found to a recent study in Finland.

Farms and day care centers are associated with asthma prevention due to high levels of microbial exposure, while actions that reduce bacterial populations in the home may actually increase allergy development.
