A little dirt never hurt anybody. My kids, 5 and 1, have each been on antibiotics once and I hated having to use them. I don’t carry hand sanitized in m purse, diaper bag, or truck. When we get sick we ride it ot and increase our probiotics intake. These germaphobe parents that drench their kids in Purell are just asking for trouble.

When we were growing up, our Dad stopped on his way home from work and bought “raw milk” straight from the farm. It was only when we moved to more urbanized areas that I first encountered pasteurized milk. And it was the first time I encountered kids with asthma and allergies. Correlation or simple coincidence? I don’t know, but am glad we grew up in our younger days where we did.

Yep, we use to play in the dirt, swim in rivers and drink water from rivers and ponds ... seldom got sick.

I’m with you. In fact, in my case, I rarely wash my hands, except when I’m doing real work (as opposed to metrosexual stuff). One problem though - I never get sick either.

Not to mention that it’s difficult to find a soap (in a pump dispenser) WITHOUT antibacterial stuff in it...

Bingo.

I refuse to buy antibacterial soap. You have to read labels carefully. 90% of what’s on the shelf is antibacterial.

My immune system is just fine because
a) I wash my hands with (regular) soap and water so that I’m not breeding resistant bacteria in my home.
b) Exposure to a few germs now and then keeps my immune system strong.
