As a link between research and practice, the newly founded DGBH positioned Kettig / Koblenz, August 13, 2010. The newly founded DGBH has positioned itself as a link between research and practice. The objective is to promote the cooperation with science, industry and professional associations for the prevention of allergies and infections and to improve. Read additional details here: Berkshire Hathaway. So approved mattresses, duvets, or references be provided E.g. through the DGBH with a seal of approval, gives the consumer the security during sleep not mold or dust mites to come. The number of children today suffer from allergies or asthma, is increasing and is already at 25%. 20% of all people react to mould and house dust mite allergens already.

So there was already in 2006 more than 400,000 treatment worthy cases in hospitals. Up to 15,000 people die each year from this. Nevertheless still not enough attention is given to the bed, when it comes to the transmission of diseases. During one average sleep time of 8 hours the man emits up to one liter of sweat in bed. This penetrates deep in pillows, mattress or duvet and forms the ideal environment in which bacteria, fungi and dust mites can multiply so in combination with the body heat. Considering the fact that 1/3 his life in bed staying on as a healthy person, and the incidence of allergies is increasing in the developed countries, should a much greater importance attached to the prevention and reduction of potential allergen are. The importance of fungi and beacons animal growth associated with allergic reactions and diseases such as rhinitis and asthma has long been known. Still, lung diseases discusses the aggravation by colonization with potentially pathogenic bacteria and fungi.

It could be shown that the total number of fungi in relation to asthma symptoms is. In addition, prospective clinical studies show a link between domestic mold concentrations and respiratory diseases in children. Results from a study published in 2002 could show a significant increase of colony-forming units of bacteria and fungi on 22 ml of brand new mattresses already 3 months. Later after 6 months the value rose to 40 ml, after 12 months on over 400 ml. Together with the foam and textile industry now succeeded the DGBH, to upgrade the foam and the reference material to prevent growth of mold, dust mites and bacteria. The memory foam mattresses, as well as the covers equipped permanently so that pathogenic organisms, such as the MRSA bacteria and fungi are killed. Soon they are standard 100 and cold foam mattresses tested according to ISO 10993 (5 + 10) about their biological security exclusively via the Web shop according to oko TeX available. Hans.Haberkorn
