Why trips to the village save children from asthma: scientists explained
Finnish academics told how to minimize asthma attacks in children.
As it turned out, everything is simple: the more the child spends time in the village, the less he is susceptible to the development or aggravation of asthma.
It's all about the microflora, which contains a lot of microbes and bacteria, much more than in cities.
People who live in cities are sterile in some ways, so they are more likely to suffer from asthma and allergies.
Academics attempted to establish the reason for such an interesting trend by analyzing several health groups of children from 0 to 6 years old who live in cities.
Thus, it was found that asthma often struck those urban children whose habitat was radically different from the village.
And the risk of illness increased not from a certain type of microbes, but from their number in the air.
