    Yeah @VicPark when I read the studies that back up these reports I'll believe it.

    I'm still awaiting the WHO alert on shoe-transferred disease outbreak in first world countries.

    I haven't seen people not wash hands. I've seen blood and poo streaks on the floor and toilet seat though... This is probably the main reason why shoes in the house give me the heebies

    Infants exposed to rodent and pet dander, roach allergens and a wide variety of household bacteria in the first year of life appear less likely to suffer from allergies, wheezing and asthma, according to results of a study conducted by scientists at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center and other institutions.
    What the heck is dander?

    I might be wrong but I think it's dried pet saliva and small microscopic flakes of pet skin.
    People with allergies are very sensitive to it

    What, outbreaks in second and third world countries don't matter?

    I think once a baby is crawling there's really no point in worrying. But I'm the furthest from germaphobe you can get.

    Childcare workers wear shoes at work. My babies loved crawling around play centres. Babies love crawling in the dirt, grass, wood chips at the park. I've got 3 kids and trying to protect my third from things has been impossible. I've also got a dog. She sh1ts on the grass and my kids loved rolling around in the grass and playing in the garden dirt when they were crawling. Of course I removed the dog poo but really, who knows what other cr@p is on my lawn at any given time.

    Dander is an informal term for a material shed from the body of animals, similar to dandruff. It is composed of skin cells. It is a cause of allergies in humans.
