Chill Already!

People get sick.  It happens.  We have this amazing built-in system for handling it called an immune system.  Most of us have perfectly normal immune systems, which means that we can easily fight off most illnesses.  The thing is, if we keep dousing ourselves with antibacterial soap every fifteen seconds, we will deny our bodies the chance to build immunity.  Worse, by exposing too many germs to antibacterial substances, we wind up encouraging the devlopment of "super-bugs".
