Excellent question. This theme is something I have wondered about. I read
an article or maybe it was one of those news shows that implicated our over
use of antibacterial cleaning products as a factor in the increased
resistance to antibiotics some diseases have developed. Being a factidious
housekeeper is not the way anyone would discribe me so I am not often
flinging around losts of antibacterial cleaners. We also live on a farm,
that includes animals. My kids have lived around farm animals all their
lives. The last time I took them for a check up the nurse said wow you
haven't been here since your previous check up, how do you stay so healthy?
I said I don't know, but often wondered if it was that we don't live in an
artifically sterile environment. Beth
