Just one more reason to not spawn.

This is my alma mater!

Babies stir up clouds of bio-gunk when they crawl

Infant and adult inhalation exposure research

Date: January 11, 2018

Source: Purdue University

Summary: When babies crawl, their movement across floors, especially carpeted surfaces, kicks up high levels of dirt, skin cells, bacteria, pollen, and fungal spores, a new study has found. The infants inhale a dose of bio bits in their lungs that is four times (per kilogram of body mass) what an adult would breathe walking across the same floor.

When babies crawl, their movement across floors, especially carpeted surfaces, kicks up high levels of dirt, skin cells, bacteria, pollen, and fungal spores, a new study has found. The infants inhale a dose of bio bits in their lungs that is four times (per kilogram of body mass) what an adult would breathe walking across the same floor.

As alarming as that sounds, lead researcher Brandon Boor of Purdue University is quick to add that this isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"We are interested in the biological material an infant inhales, especially during their first year of life when they are crawling. Many studies have shown that inhalation exposure to microbes and allergen-carrying particles in that portion of life plays a significant role in both the development of, and protection from, asthma and allergic diseases," Boor says. "There are studies that have shown that being exposed to a high diversity and concentration of biological materials may reduce the prevalence of asthma and allergies later in life."

Scientists have previously done studies to determine how much dirt and biological material is kicked up and resuspended into the air when an adult walks indoors, but this is the first study to look at what happens with infants and their unique forms of locomotion.

Crawling across the floor is one thing, planting your mouth on the floor and dragging your tongue for two feet is a whole other thing. "Isn't that cute?"

Of note: I haven't had the merest sniffle in about 15 years now. I attribute that to coming into less contact with hoomans and virtually zero contact with germ bags.

They scuff the carpet and floor more than walking on two feet, with or without shoes/slippers.

Or redistribute the gunk around the house more evenly.

The studies have shown that layers adhere less efficiently when the depth exceeds 6"/300mm.

:shockd: That kid's got beats! How does he even have the muscle coordination at age 3? Amazing. I love how he kept looking at the orchestra as if to say, "Well, are you guys ready? Do try and keep up."
