A lot of folks think that this antibacterial products sham has gone way too far. Yesterday I heard of a fellow that was shopping at Office Depot, and guess what he found? Antibacterial pencils. Can you believe that? He found some mechanical pencils made by PaperMate that have an antibacterial coating. Unbelievable.
We’ve seen antibacterial hand soaps and dish soaps, shampoos and all kinds of other personal care and cleaning products. And we’ve seen all the bad news about this, as well, including the fact that they are completely and utterly useless at actually protecting people from germs, viruses or contagious disease. These chemicals basically create super bugs in your own kitchen. They actually encourage the growth of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and they do nothing to make you healthier because we don’t live in a sanitary environment in the first place.
You know, we live with bacteria all around us. In fact, our immune system needs to be stimulated by some exposure to bacteria in order to be healthy enough to defend ourselves against those really aggressive ones that might make us sick. We have to have bacteria in our environment if we want to be healthy.Is it to late to fix? Well guess it depends on how far we let it get of hand in the future.
