Parents who are extremely particular about providing a germ-free environment for their children by not exposing them to dirt could actually be doing them more harm than good.

When children are exposed to unhygienic conditions early, their developing immune systems face a larger variety of bacteria as compared to children brought up in hygienic environments.

Researchers found that such children with stronger immune systems are less likely to develop allergies later on during adulthood.
