Hey, guess what? I eat pork that’s pink in the middle. I eat burgers cooked medium…sometimes medium rare (even at – gasp! – restaurants). Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been eating leftover pizza that spent the night in a cardboard box on the kitchen counter. And you know what? I get sick maybe once every 12 months or so – and it hasn’t been a digestive problem in at least 5 years.
Correlation is NOT causation, but I do subscribe to the notion that being less fanatical about food sanitation (while not ignoring common sense precautions) makes for a stronger immune system.

Hey, I STILL have that bowl of potato salad in the fridge from five days ago. I guess I should try. Hmmm….Kinda reminds me to sanitize my hands before working in those nasty MacBooks usually covered with some kind of old food and soda can rings that I always seem to get. 😛 🙂
Ya vog!, but I’m still gonna use a paper towel to open public restroom doors after I’ve washed my hands. I trust meat more than people
