Washing Dishes by Hand reduce Allergies

SHAFAQNA – Study published in Medscape.com revealed that ”  Washing dishes by hand, rather than in a dishwasher, may help prevent allergies in children, a new Swedish study has found. In addition, the study suggests that consuming fermented or farm-bought food could decrease the likelihood of allergies further. The study, published online February 23 in Pediatrics, analyzed questionnaire responses about daily household practices from families of 1029 children aged 7 to 8 years.”

The study added ” The researchers theorized that the bacteria left over on dishware and utensils from hand-washing, a “less-efficient dishwashing method,” helped the subjects build tolerance to allergens. “Low hygiene standards and increased microbial exposure are common denominators often seen in low allergy-risk settings,” the authors noted.”
