It’s called an immune system; it needs practice.
The obsession with becoming “green” has gotten way out of control. It is consuming our lives! It is absolutely fine to care about our health and eat friendly. But why do we need to concern ourselves with the fine details over which we have no control? Is the container safe? Does it contain harmful anythings? Who cares.
Purell is seen absolutely everywhere and it’s ridiculous. Do people not realize that some germs are good for us? It keeps our immune systems working and thus when we get really sick, our bodies will be strong enough to fight off infection and sickness. But if we keep trying to live in a safe little happy perfect bubble, well….the common cold will be the death of us all.
Wash your hands when it’s appropriate to. It’s not really necessary to abuse Purell.
We can’t escape germs. We need them. Without them our immune systems are going to go KA PUT.
If you’re not someone who likes to get sick, then stop being such a germ-a-phobe. Realize they are everywhere and there’s nothing you can do about it.
I’m not saying share cups and straws with every stranger you meet and to let people cough and sneeze into your mouth, but come on people; we are making ourselves targets.
