Why is it that certain diseases are more present in modern, advanced countries than in the developing world?

Over the past decades, Type 1 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, allergies, and other similar complaints are almost daily in our lives and in our environment, and more in the modern world, too. Many people are looking for an explanation of what's the reason? There is a theory called the Hygiene Hypothesis. This is based on the assumption that there are certain pathogens that are very useful in the early stages of our lives and that strengthen the immune system, but in the western world they are almost unlikely to be present in our lives. You could also say we're getting sick because we're too clear.

- Finding out where in the world the highest incidence of autoimmune diseases and allergic diseases, and where the most common diarrhea or other bacterial diseases occur, and comparing it, said he also did research for MIT and Harvard.
A series of researches prove that the better we isolate our body from bacteria, the less our immune system will be resilient, so that the aforementioned diseases, which are most common in advanced countries, can develop.
According to an article by broadinstitute.org, for example, compared to the border regions between Finland and Russia, T1D, or type 1 diabetes, has a six-fold higher incidence in the advanced Finnish area than the less developed Russian. Despite the fact that the growth of the economy and standard of living in Finland is much faster than in Russia.
Although in recent decades the number of infections caused by infections has actually decreased in developed countries (which can be attributed to the possibility of washing hands with pure water) simply, today, it is simply referred to as "sickness."
