Scientists recommend exposing newborns to environment microbes

Madrid, Apr 11 (Prensa Latina) A newborn must develop in a clean environment but without excesses, since he must interact with microbes in the environment to strengthen his immune system, a specialized source revealed on Monday.

“It´s necessary to banish classic idea that we must have everything spotless, shiny, without bacteria, in areas where newborns and younger children live. It has been proven that this is not good,” the Malaga Institute of Clinical Immunology and Infectious Diseases Director Fernando Fariñas told the Infosalus site.

One of the present causes that could be behind increased autoimmune and allergic diseases, or even some cancers in general, is because we have lost biodiversity, quantity and quality of these microorganisms that live in us, so they are super important ” Mr. Farinas argued.

One of Microbes´ functions is to protect us from other bacteria; or help in digestion and absorption of nutrients and minerals; or even metabolic or neurological processes, the Spanish expert pointed out.

However, the most important thing is that this set of microorganisms can develop an immune system capable of fighting off external and internal challenges.

Even microbes can produce neurotransmitters that have a favorable impact on anxiety, stress, and depression.
