This is something that I discuss regularly with my mother, a life long nurse. One of the things that she points out is that there was actually a few
scientists in the 70's/80's who warned about the over-use of not just antibiotics but also antibacterials as well.
It is well known for a long time that both of these things will kill 90ish % of the target, however the remaining 10ish % will be naturally immune.
Over time evolution takes it's course at a greatly accelerated pace resulting in only those organisms that are immune.
If you really want to tweak your brain, maybe that is a conspiracy in itself...People's fear of germs helps to create germs we should fear.
Although I don't watch alot of TV anymore, there is a commercial running now from J&J about a hands free soap dispenser. I don't know whether to
laugh or shake my head when I see it: The entire premise is that it will automatically dispense a measure of soap without being touched, thereby
saving the user from coming in contact with potentially harmful bacteria.
What makes me laugh is that it is an Anti-bacteria Soap.
"Buy this, you won't get germs on your hands IMMEDIATELY before using an anti-germ product to clean your dirty hands".
Redundant or insane?
