boys have cooties, but so do girls...

...and more of them!?

I'm awake at this ungodly hour, at first so disoriented as not to even remember the hoopla that is November 4th, 2008, when I logged on and there it was: "Change has come to America". Indeed it has, and if nothing else can be said, we as Americans have all been a part of this monumental day in history.

Wanting to see the news via various domains (I dig pomp and circumstance. What can I say?), I clicked onto the ABC news link and saw this article. Of course, being a student nurse who has just recently (re)learned about infection control it peaked my interests!

Womens' hands are dirtier than mens'!? The article brings up some good points, but I'd never had thunk it!

Speaking of things girls have more of, they have more of a chance of becoming president of the good ole US of A! Thank you President Elect Obama!

Haha, I read that article too, I couldn't resist.

The results weren't surprising to me at all. I think the important take-away message here is that that VAST majority of those bacteria are not harmful. And in fact may be beneficial in the simply fact they keep the pathogens from flourishing by simple competition for resources.

How long do you think we'll have probiotic hand soap? A soap that encourages healthy flora?
