Well, that would be true before anti bacterial resistance reared its ugly head.
I fully appreciate your knowledge, but I can easily forsee a frightful conclusion as anti biotics, anti bactetial soaps etc continue to flood our ground water etc...to a point where once easily controlled bacteria, once again become uncontrolable and resistant to our pharmaceuticals...hell many of our pharmie anti biotics are causing worse than they cure already.
