9/14/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

  With fall approaching, many people become germ-a-phobic’s.  Manufacturers put anti-bacterial substances on everything including soaps, lotions, small children’s toys and even cutting boards.

At some point we need to question if a few germs doesn’t help build a healthy immune system.  We ran around as children at the barn all day long, never washing with anti-bacterial soap, and we didn’t catch something horrible.

Don’t misunderstand me.  I think you should wash your hands after using the bathroom, or before you eat.  Also, if you have a cold or flu, germs are everywhere in your home and you should arm yourself with several cans of Lysol!

But, I have to question the long-term issues for children’s health with making a toy a toddler puts into their mouth made with a chemical that gets rid of the ryno-virus germ. 

A dependence on products that are made with anti-bacterial properties can lead to a false sense of security about washing products you come in to contact with during the cold-and-flu season.  Running bath or everyday toys through the dishwasher when applicable can do a great job.

Ok…now that I’ve gotten that off my chest I feel much better Laughing.
