If you thought that access to good and clean water can keep you away from all kinds of diseases, think again.
According to a new report, clean water can lead to a high risk of asthma in kids since they do not contain the beneficial microbes, an Ecuadorian study has claimed.
Researchers have found a yeast in the gut of new babies in Ecuador in South America. Presence of this yeast in babies is an indication that they will develop asthma in childhoods. These researchers are based at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada.
The study also suggests that it is the microscopic organisms that play an important role in the overall health. The kids with this kind of yeast known as Pichia were seen at the risk of asthma. The researchers claim that this is the first time when any report of such kind has appeared in the media.
As per the study, it has been observed that it is the microscopic organisms which play an important role in the overall health. Kids with this kind of yeast which is known as Pichia has more chances of getting asthma. This is for the first time that any report related to such kind has appeared in media as pre the researchers.
Earlier the researchers have claimed that gut bacteria present in the Canadian kids in the first 100 days of life can play a key role in preventing asthma.
In countries like Canada and Ecuador, highest rates of asthma are found which amounts to 10 percent of the population, who suffer from this disease as per reports.
It is also revealed that the gut bacteria seem to play a key role in preventing the disease of asthma in Ecuador and that the very presence or microscopic fungus per year seemed to link with the same.
The researchers after conducting the study, in this case, claimed that the kids will remain under the risk of attaining the disease, whether they have access to clean water or not, depending upon the health of the child and overall conditions of the surrounding.
In the end, the conclusion which we can take out from this article is that even clean water is not safe for the kids. As they say that there is some link formed between clean water and asthma. And this again is really an interesting subject which can be explored by the researchers
