Story out of Britain today showing that children attending day care are less likekely to develop asthma.Headlines last week that the most dangerous place to be in was in a hospital. So here is my theory, the more you are exposed to germs the better your immune system works- thus the results of children in daycare.In hospitals they try and keep them super clean—and it is the most dangerous place to be.In my book ‘Medical Crisis” i address this issue mentioning that we live overzealous world bent on destroying all germs. TV advertising for cleaning products tell us that their product kill 99% of all germs. The problem is that when you kill all germs you are also killing good germs that are on our side .I am not saying that doctors or nurses should not wash their hands but they should use old fashion soap and water and not antibacterial soaps that are full of chemicals. Folks as you can see i am not a big proponent of the germ theory .
