I certainly won’t have a problem with a too-clean house!

According to this Reuters article, a recent study shows that ultra-clean houses may increase the risk of children developing inflammatory bowel disease. This is thought to be due to the hygiene hypothesis, the same reason why young children who are never exposed to various microorganisms have an increased risk of losing the ability to fight off certain diseases.

All I can say is that if I ever have any children, they certainly won’t get inflammatory bowel disease or any other disease due to an ultra-clean house!
