I Like Dirt!

The US FDA have not "banned antibacterial soap". Certain elements used in antibacterial soaps were found not to be as effective as claimed and have to be

excluded - though that is a long way for banning antibacterial soaps wholesale.

That said, we are trying to keep our surroundings far too clean. Our bodies are designed to deal with many localised issues and ailments - but if we try and kill all the germs around us, it follows that our bodies will become less stress resistant (so to speak) meaning a greater reliance on antibiotics and so, a spiral is created which at the end of the day, does not do anyone any good. For example, look at explorers back in the 17th and 18th Century. Many local tribes died due to common illnesses imported by those explorers - even the common cold, which we can all manage to get over with a bit of help from some hot lemon, was responsible for the deaths of many of those whom explorers discovered as the local people simply did not have the same immunity.

Yes, we must all follow hygiene procedures. but we should not be trying to create wholly germ-free local surroundings. Some dirt is good!
