Funnier than a rubber crutch and just as useless.
According to the books I have read recently, featuring new practices such
as wiping vaginal fluid all over a newborn who has been delivered by
C-section, we should sit our asses down and be happy to pick up some new
germs for our immune system to learn.
Not far in the future: Probiotics (already here) are expanded by several
factors and administered to babies at every pediatrician visit. Far better
and easier than having them play in stockyard dirt/manure, and with animals
of all kinds, including strange children (such as Spike and I were).
No doubt you have heard all this but just consider: maybe instead of
reaching for the spray bottle of alcohol in the doctor's office, we should
just kiss everyone there on the mouth.
My my, how things change regarding our attitudes towards germs. As I said
in an earlier post: our greatest enemies, our greatest friends.
