In the light of all the hysteria around Ebola, I came across an article from WebMD, one of my favorites for medical updates. The article cites all the techniques for ridding your environment of germs, a concept with which I mightily disagree. Of course there are germs we'd best avoid, but in ordinary life, the likelihood of meeting them are remote. Moreover, there much data on the importance of exposing ourselves, and especially our children to as many foreign proteins (including germs) as possible. Asthma is a prime example of the effects of avoiding germs and dogs. P.S. There is much money to be made in the war on germs! This article by a dentist makes important points and is worth a few moments of your time. GERMS: GOOD AND BAD

I have been saying this all along--too many germicides! Glad to know I'm not the only one!

I so agree, children were so much healthier and stronger before everything became antibacterial. Now my great grand children have a hard time just staying well.
