People knew this back in the 80's. For a while antibacterials and the like were rejected by the public because of this. Suddenly in the 2000's we are right back at it. I guess its just one example of how history repeats itself.

Sure, happens all the time. Bacteria and diseases learn to adjust to the things we throw at them, and they become tolerant and immune.

I always use soap and hot water, have never bought hand sanitizer in my life.

Of course, they (the bacteria) want to survive just as bad as we do, and will continue to keep evolving for infinity, and eventually survive long after all of us Homo sapiens sapiens are long gone!
