This is a serious problem. I suggest you stop bathing and brushing your teeth immediately. Ixnay on the Scope and deoderant. Too many good bugs taking friendly fire... Incidently, this should also take care of your "get rid of a friend" problem....

I am most certain that there must be a website for this sort of thing. Something along the line of [url]soapkills.com[/url] or other! Me, I like to clean my food prior to partaking! Just a personal choice, I suppose. The environment is changing so rapidly, that I sincerely doubt that 'Mother Nature' can keep up with what works and what doesn't work, any longer. In a couple of years, I can imagine being injected with 'beneficial bacteria' to replenish that which has been destroyed by the actions of Western Civilization's obsession with cleanliness. An obsession which I heartily approve! Eric The(LittleDutch)Hun[>]:)]

Actually, inhaling a bit of anti-bacterial cleaner probably won't kill that many bugs in your body at one time, if any, "good" or "bad". When a doctor gives you an antibiotic, you are given a course which usually runs for a week or longer. You are directed to take the complete dose, even if you quickly feel better. The danger here is that if you stop treatment prematurely, you may not have killed all the targeted bacteria, and you may develope a strain of bacteria immune to the particular antibiotic. This is a serious health problem worldwide. Drug companies are always looking for new antibiotics, and some ab's are prescribed only if other common drugs fail to stop the infection. So the real question isn't if we are making our immune system wusses, per se, but if we are making superbugs. Some folks think that that indiscriminate use of "antibacterial" cleaners and soaps is adding to this problem. So there is some validity to your question. When I was a teaching assistant in a micro lab in college, we routinely used a dilute solution of bleach to clean our work areas before doing any culture work. Ethanol is also routinely used as a surface disinfectant in labs. Nothing fancy, but effective.

You do deworm humans when they need it, although it is not as common as it was during our more rural recent past. Heck, folks where I was raised wormed their kids [u]just in case[/u] they needed it.

Yes indeed. Also, babies that are breast-fed usually have more developed immune systems than formula babies, as the antigens in mama's milk is passed on to them.

I was talking with a woman who had her tongue pierced and I commented about the potential for a serious infection in the human mouth. She said the stuff she was using to prevent infection killed the good bacteria along with the bad and she had a nasty yeasty paste on her tongue because of it.
