Urban centers are epicenter of immune system dysfunctions. Those who are raised under the love of mother nature, don’t really suffer anything. In fact, like Lord Shiva, they have Nilkanth (can consume poison and still don’t get poisoned). They can stand straight against all environmental odds. 🙂
With changing climate patterns, our future generations will see more severe environmental conditions. To prepare them, it is must for us to expose them to Nature. If living on farm is not possible, visit farms weekly.
- Prefer visiting untouched jungle tracks with kids during spring
- Visit only Farms with Gau shala and natural farming

How farming protects against allergies
People who grow up on dairy farms only rarely develop asthma or allergies. This is probably because as children, they breathe air containing bacterial components, which reduce the overall reactivity of the immune system. Schuijs et al. chronically exposed mice to bacterial endotoxin before they received an allergic stimulus. The protocol indeed protected them from developing an allergic response. Protection relied on a particular enzyme: A20. In humans, a variant of A20 correlates with increased susceptibility to asthma and allergy in children growing up on farms.
