Dishwashers Implicated in Epidemic of Allergy and Auto-Immune Illnesses

Just in time for Sub-Zero Dishwasher entry……………….

A Swedish study has found that dishwashers, and the hyper-clean western lifestyle may be the cause of the epidemic of Allergies.

Eczema, an auto-immune disease, was found to be less likely in families who washed their dishes by hand, and more likely in families that used dishwashers.  Could Dishwashers and Washers whether NSF Certified or not, and dis-infecting floor and tile cleaners, and germicide hand washers, all be part of the larger tidal wave of horrific auto-immune diseases (exhaustively listed below)?  Perhaps this will have to wait for future studies.  The past work on Hook Worms, and Germicide Hand Washes, and Families with Pets has been for over a decade, are pointing to cleanliness as a being a bit further from Godliness than we all originally thought.
