Do you wash your hands?

I recently attended a seminar concerning our over-antibiotic-ed society. Our generation is becoming immune to antibiotics due to the amount we take and our over-produced fear of germs. When the 'Super Bug' finds it's way to us, there will be nothing to stop it because we're all immune to the good germs, the only germs, that can save us!

I was wondering why this problem has emerged...well I found an antibiotic in my TOOTHPASTE, I was quite upset. My husband and I rarely go to the doctor. I have not taken anything in over a year and my husband has only taken on antibiotic for a dental problem and it turned out the pills were wrongly prescribed and they made him sick! We eat only Organic because they are putting antibacterial things in food, covering fruits and vegetables. All you need to do is wash them! You'll be fine!

I sick a lot when I was a kit. Always ear infections and tonsil problems. I found a doctor that would not prescribe anything unless he knew what I had, otherwise he told me to go home and sleep. I thank him for that! I get sick less than once a year! *knock on wood* I've been told by a pharmacist that it is because my immune system learned to fight for itself. Eat yogurt also helps because those bacterial cultures help protect your body.

Needless to say I changed my toothpaste. All you need to do to protect yourself is eat healthy and wash your hands! And none of that antibacterial crap, did you know antibacterial soap kills everything on your hands? Even the bacteria that is keeping you alive. Regular soap does the job fine...oh, and sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while you wash and you'll be fine. (not out loud though, or you might not be fine, getting beat up isn't my problem) That song is the perfect length and you should be rubbing your hands together the entire time. None of that putting soap on your hands (or no soap) swishing them under the tap for 2 seconds (no rubbing) and running your wet hands through your hair to dry them. Ladies! I see you do this, and it disgusts me. Millions of germs reproduce in the dampness of your hands, after washing them properly you need to DRY THEM...but for starters you need to learn to wash.

I'm not even going to bring up men, I bet less than 50% of you wash your hands after using the toilet. I know one guy that does, but he's obsessed with being clean, and it shows. Go ahead people, get angry and PLEASE prove me wrong.
