If you read my last post about why you should wash your hands diligently, never mind.
This germ thing is so darn confusing. Right after I wrote that post, a friend emailed me Jane E. Brody’s New York Times story, “Babies Know: A Little Dirt Is Good for You.”
Brody quotes Dr. Ruebush as saying that bacteria are everywhere: on us, in us and around us. In other words, these microorganisms are not the problem. To further discredit my post, Dr. Ruebush deplores the current fetish for antibacterial products that I praised.
Sure, Dr. Ruebush recommends that you use hand cleaners if there’s no water and you’ve just used the bathroom.
But, she says that the “wash your hands before you eat!” rule is pointless. What do you say?
