I thought this might be interesting. I do not have any medical issues which compromise my immune system and my question/poll is targeted at people that also do not have a compromised immune system.
I do not and have not allowed anti-bacterial cleaners or soaps in my home ever. I use a wooden cutting board because germs do not grow on them and only clean it with a brush and hot water, no soaps. I do not get the flu shot and I get sick once sometimes twice a year.
I am of the belief that we (our bodies) need to be exposed to germs and bacteria in order to develop immunities to them. I also believe the proliferation of anti-bacterial cleaners and soaps are responsible for the increase in sick children and adults in this country because they have no natural immunity to anything.
