Reduced Allergy Risk if Your Parents Sucked

This study was covered extensively last week, but in case you missed it... parents who clean their infant's pacifier by sucking on it may be protecting their baby from developing allergies.

The researchers found that, after a baby dropped their pacifier on the floor, those whose parents sucked the pacifiers to clean them before giving it back were less likely to have asthma, eczema, and sensitization to potential allergens at 18 months of age (compared to children whose parents washed the pacifiers or sterilized them).

The researcher also found that children born vaginally and exposed to parental oral microbiota had the lowest prevalence of eczema, compared with cesarean-born children not exposed to parental oral microbiota.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to subscribers of this site. I've covered similar studies in the past, and it only takes a small logical step to extrapolate those results to the current topic.

Anyway, if you're new to my site, you better click HERE now, and to subscribe to stay "In the Know."
