Why Amish Children Rarely Get Asthma
This study strongly suggests that early and frequent exposure to farming microbes, particular those that come from livestock, boosts Amish children’s disease-fighting immune system. The authors hope that these findings will point the way towards therapies or medicines that will help to prevent asthma and other allergies. As Ober put it, “You can’t put a cow in every family’s house, but we may be able to protect children from asthma by finding a way to re-create the time-tested Amish experience.”
