Too Clean for our own good?…Raw Food post ready too!

June 11, 2009

antibacterialsoapYou betcha. The title says what I have long preached that anti-bacterial this, anti-biotic that, cook to a certain temperature, pasteurize it, you name it, will eventually be the death of us. Heck I even remember posting a quote up in one of my original “Eat Like a Caveman” posts. In case you forgot it, here it is again:

Today’s mentality about dirt, germs and protecting kids from everything will be the cause of extinction of humans at some point in the future.

Well, you don’t have to take my word on it. While scanning the weather channel this evening for severe weather warnings, I came across a link that caught my attention with the title above (sans raw food afterthought). After reading it, I felt compelled to share it. So here it is.

I couldn’t have said it better myself, except maybe leaving out that part about a happy balance. If you are going to commit yourself to a healthier immune system, then do it, which in this case means don’t do it (wash your hands so much, buy anti-bacterial products, use anti-biotics, etc. etc.)

Here is another related article that points out something very important:

The truth is, people who are buying up all the antibaterial products are doing so because they think they’re being extra cautious and protecting themselves from disease or infection.

But what they don’t realize is that most of the infections people get are of the cold, flu and diarrhea variety — and those are caused by viruses NOT bacteria!

This discussion is closely related to the Raw Food post I’ve been working on, which instead of a post, I decided to make into it’s own page. It’s a work in progress and a page is easier to edit, so without much ado, click here to access this new page.

Happy reading!
