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.

I had to learn all the label-ease. My former job exposed me to such a massive amount of the aeromatic hydrocarbon-based type chemicals that I can't even use the soap in a public restroom without the skin on my hands developing cracks and ozing, itchy blisters.

You really want to freak a germaphobe out, call 'antibacterials' what they really are.....

pesticides.

This 'the only good bacteria is a dead bacteria' mentality is [literally] killing us.
