      Thank you for your well presented information on how bacteria alter when exposed to anti-bacterial soaps, etc. As an older microbiologist now turned nutritionist, I and many others have been warning against the use of these anti-microbial soaps for so long. We can simply be "too Clean". Thanks for keeping us more up to date.

      Mary Peiffer, Kathy, this is great information to pass on to everyone. There is confusion I see by many people. Too much fear by many to cause people to protect themselves. I have an interesting book you may like to read or hear as I heard it on an audiocd. "Mind-Body Medicine THE NEW SCIENCE OF OPTIMAL HEALTH".I got it from my library. Aunt Mary
