This may cause infectious deseases or allergies later on. That
is, dear ladies, whether you don’t like it: get your hands
off the brush and the spatula.
"A woman can take care of herself!" say some pregnant
women to themselves and in delight they start redecorating the
future baby’s room. They repaint it or cover the walls with
wall paper, lay a carpet, buy new furniture. For the baby to feel
as comfortable as possible starting from the first day everything
should look pale and cute. This eagerness has a price: If redecoration
is being done during pregnancy or a short period after the baby
is born, then, in the first months of his life this can cause
irritation in the respiratory channels and can cause respiratory
For the first
time it is proven that the children’s immune system –
even in the mother’s body- can be affected by redecorating
activities, in such a way that they can get infectious diesases
and allergies more easily. Due to eveporation released by every
redecoration, painting, adhesive substances, carpets and new furniture
and the amount of chemicals in the interior atmosphere also increases.
from Leipzig have suggested with a new research that, there were
functional changes in the immune system of newborn babies, whose
parents were involved in redecoration during pregnancy. These
especially affect T-Lymphocyte. These are cells that produce special
transfer substances and therefore control the immune system’s
reaction after contact with stimulants or allergy causing agents.
It was found
that in the umbilical cord of these children the ratio of Th1-subsidiary
cells was low. These help fight agents such as viruses that have
entered the body effectively. Also, they prevent the the formation
of over allergic reactions caused by allergens such as pollens.

research center in Leipzig jointly with institutes and clinics
of the medical faculty of the University of Leipzig.
The new results
that emerged in a study at the scientist out of clinics and research
institutions in Leipzig, Munich, Wesel, bath Honnef and Jena involved

allergy risk can increase.
chemicals weaken just those cells of our immune system that can
protect against allergic reactions.
Also the recognition
is new that the effect of these chemicals can use already in the
pregnancy and possibly through it already in the mother body the
bases are put for a later disease of the child.
