Booming Sales of Anti-Bacteria Products Endanger Public Health
OK - I will admit it. I am a germaphobe. I wash my hands constantly, but I still haven't bought into the antibacterial "this and that" crusade. I am fearful that anti-bacterial products will create super-resistant bacteria, and I am not alone in my thinking. Now I find out that chloroform and dioxins may be created by these products as well. Read the story This Is Why We Don't Clean. Another example of convincing the public that something is better for us without examining the long-term consequences.
COMMON SENSE: It's survival of the fittest out there for bacteria as it is for every other species. The strongest will survive. The strongest will adapt. Then, what kind of anti-bacterial towel are you going to use for them?
