washing plates

 

 

new and preliminary study, published in the journal; Paediatrics, adds to an increasing body of evidence that suggests getting a little dirty does the immune system some good. Over the years, research has linked a variety of early lifestyle factors, like having pets,eating fish and living on a farm to a significantly lower risks of developing allergies. Now, this new study suggests that hand washing dishes might be the next behavior to add to the list. The study still leaves a few questions unanswered - like why hand washing was only associated with a lower likelihood of eczema and not other allergy-related symptoms like asthma, or why the effect was so significant even though dish washing requires the use of soaps, possibly even antibacterial products. Hesselmar (The author of the study) says they are asking the same questions and hope to continue looking into the link.

honda

 

 

Honda's CEO Takanobu Ito who joined Honda in 1978, and climbed the ranks to become head of the company in June 2009 will step down from his post in June.

Ito will be succeeded by Takahiro Hachigo, currently Honda’s managing officer, the company announced in a public statement. Although the announcement comes after Honda recalled millions of vehicles due to faulty airbags produced by another Japanese company, Takata, it wasn't mentioned if Ito’s resignation had anything to do with the company’s recent struggles — a massive recall over faulty airbags, poor sales, and regulatory fines.
