Cleanliness linked with diabetes


According to the Daily Mail, being too clean could increase the risk of diabetes, due to lack of exposure to bacteria and viruses during childhood.

The study from the University of Bristol also found that good gut bacteria can prevent the onset of diabetes.

It is suggested that lack of exposure increases the risks of diseases like asthma, allergies and other immune disorders.
