The Fight With Germs
So I'm not one of those women that carries Bath and Body hand sanitizer with me- sanitizing after I've shaken someone's hand or been to Walmart or any other various activities when I've seen those little bottles whipped out. And I think it makes my immune system stronger. Plus I live on a farm, where there are germs everywhere. (I'm not saying that my house is gross or filthy either, just have a practical approach to how much am I really going to get clean.) Look at guys, do you see guys with little sanitizer bottles on their belt, diligently squirting after they've peed behind a tree. Lol, I don't think so. I consider it lucky if the guys will wash their hands when they come in from doing whatever they've been doing. Has society (or Bath and Body Works) created this fear of any germs, that is inherently making immune systems ineffective? What quantity of germs is good to build up tolerance? Have we bleached our immune systems by sanitizing? Hmmmm.
