According to a study, published in the journal "Pediatrics" and reported on by Time.com dishes washed by hand could help prevent the development of allergies in children.
It seems the introduction of microbes early in life stimulates the immune system, making it more "tolerant," according to the author of the study, Dr. Bill Hesslemar of Queen Silvia Children's Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Figuring that hand washing dishes might be an important aspect of developing a healthy immune system the team asked the parents and guardians of 1,029 children. Only 23% of children from families who hand washed the dishes were afflicted by eczema, while 38% of children whose parents used dishwashers were afflicted.
Of course, this study is only the beginning, it does raise significant opportunities. If eating from hand washed dishes proves healthier for children, what if the children washed the dishes themselves? It would teach them the value of hard work, discipline and bolster their health.
Think of the potential health benefits if children cooked the meals, raw meat, after all is filled with foul stuff, sure to add years to a childs life. Then served the food to parents whose only care is the health of their babies, and cleaned up afterward.
Dirty clothes, are filled with bacteria, which turns out to be the staff of life, imagine how healthy America's youth will be if they start washing clothes. Just think of the benefits made possible by taking in the laundry of single people who don't have to worry about the continuation of their blood line. Plus, you might make a little cash, too. Which is good for kids, they can make much better meals, giving them a higher sense of self esteem. These kids might live forever.
Raising children is difficult, and perilous, filled with pitfalls, heartache, and sacrifice, but in the grand picture of life it will be worth all of the heartburn from rich, fatty foods, and the soft, supple hands from avoiding dish water. You owe it to the next generation, after all.

Raising healthy kids, a guide.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
