Antibacterial products have never been so popular. Body soaps, household cleaners, sponges, toothpastes, cutting boards, even mattresses and lip glosses are now packing bacteria-killing ingredients.
Its tough to go anywhere without seeing hand sanitzer - at the doctors office, at the cash register, in the restroom, by the shopping carts, you might have a bottle in your bag or at your desk. The idea of needing this product is so pervasive, I have seen it on tables at restaurants.
Our culture has fully embraced the idea that "sterile" is good, it's healthy because there are no germs.

Turns out you are actually a world on which 100,000,000,000,000 (that's 100 trillion!) bacteria reside. We are outnumbered ten to one by non-human organisms in our own body's ecosystem, which is home to over 400 known diverse bacterial species.
The thought may make your skin crawl, but we live in symbiosis with these little guys - we literally could not survive without them. Those who reside in the gut promote normal gastrointestinal function, provide protection from infection, regulate metabolism, and comprise over 75% of the immune system.
