Shopping carts and dentists, that's what!

"Since Feb. 8 the Dayton VA has contacted 527 of 535 veterans seen by a dentist who failed to change latex gloves and sterilize dental instruments properly between patients. Of 375 patients tested so far, there have been seven Hepatitis C cases, two Hepatitis B cases and no cases of HIV, Director Guy Richardson said."

At least 9 Dayton VA dental patients test positive for hepatitis

I have known that for years, and door knobs etc etc etc. I do not go anywhere without my sanitizer, i don't touch anything out if i don't have to, sorry but germs. Shopping carts are so very dirty, and to think of the germs on them, don't need the hassle. I have sanitizer in my car, the whole family, does, my Doc, says it is good after touching certain things, to use the sanitizer.

I'm pretty sure I've built up immunity since I've been grocery shopping (without sanitizing) for years. Played in the dirt as a kid too.

We used to have fights with dried horse turds.....we would pick them up and throw them at each other. Sigh.....the good old days.

I am 57.....and guess what? I have a good immune system and no allergies.

So those weren't brownies left over from the last shopper?


Seriously, you think birds didn't dump on your tomatoes before they were picked?

I know. Funny thing though, animal waste does not gross me out like human waste does. Cleaning up animal waste doesn't bother me at all.......but when I think about cleaning up human waste.........it makes me sick.

Take me to a zoo and I will clean up animal waste......no problem........but don't take me to a public restroom and ask me to clean it.........not gonna happen.
