Between our lack of antibodies to bacteria due to being SO DARNED CLEAN, and the super-bacteria that we breed by taking antibiotics indiscriminatly, it's amazing that we're all still here talking to each other! My grandmother (she of the mascara advice) used to say, "You've got to eat a peck of dirt to grow up." I have stopped using antibacterial hand soap, but I still bleach my counters and cutting boards. There must be a happy medium somewhere - at least in the home kitchen. If 200 people a day were eating my food, I would feel very differently, I'm sure. This anthrax thing has me thinking about our perception of risk. Ride in the car - or open the mail. Ride in the car - or open the mail. It's the unfamiliar that scares us. Ranchers have been dealing with anthrax for 200 years in America, and view it as an acceptable risk. Veterinarians and soldiers get their vaccinations and get on with it. We know so much that we think we can make life RISK-FREE. But face it - no one gets out alive!
