I believe it.

This article talks about how cases of allergies (specifically environmental) have been increasing. It may not be a coincidence that peoples' obsessive compulsive cleanliness behaviors have been increasing as well.

My allergies used to be pretty bad. Growing up, I was prescribed a number of allergy meds. Since I went away for college, and mommy was no longer around to nag me about washing my hands, the severity of my allergies has steadily diminished. The only time I wash my fruits and vegetables is when they aren't organic and I have to get rid of pesticides, which can introduce toxins into my body which are more harmful than bacteria.

So, stop being so clean ya'll.
