To counter the people who insist on an unhealthy level of cleanliness comes the news rural living halves asthma and allergy rate.

Professor Jeroen Douwes from Massey University told an international symposium in Auckland on Thursday that growing up on a farm reduces the risk of being allergic or asthmatic by 50% – 60%. . .

Does this mean a little bit of dirt is good for our health?
