Let Them Eat Dirt
by B Brett Finlay & Marie-Claire Arrieta
If you're anything like me you grew up being told to wash hands before meals and that if things were too dirty you could get sick. Turns out the story is a lot more complicated than this and dirt, well actually the bugs in the dirt, are a lot better for you than we or the scientists ever thought! Exposure to bugs is an important part of building a young person's immune system. This short, highly readable and strongly research based book by a couple of scientists in the field will turn your world bug side up.
