Can I get an "Amen"?

Goodness gracious, I couldn't have said it better myself...Michael Ruhlman rants about the anti-bacterial obsession of American culture.

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.
