I should be dead by now

According to the latest news fear mongering anyways...

[...] Dogs should not be allowed to sleep in the same room as their owner in case they pass on diseases, one of the country's top (UK)vets has warned.

Acting Chief Veterinary Officer Fred Landeg urged people to be on the alert about pets because they can "transmit illnesses as easily as farm animals".

Among diseases thought to be carried by dogs are common food poisoning bugs such as campylobacter and salmonella as well as exotic diseases.

About 10 per cent of dogs are thought to carry the superbug MRSA. [...]

OMG!!! we are all gonna die!!!!! Well, yes we are. Its the sad truth about life. Nothing lives forever. If you really want to know what is going to be the death of the human race, read on.

I have a theory I would like to share with you. It is idiots like this VET and all the people who tell you that you have to wash your hands a billion times a day. Spray down everything with anti bacterial this and anti bacterial that. They are the dangerous ones. Not our pets. By following these peoples advice, we will weaken the human immune system so badly, that it will be unable to fight off anything. That is when and why we will cease to exist. Over use of antibiotic's anyone? Same principal...

A home should be clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be lived in. Don't panic when your child eats a little dirt in the garden. It won't kill them. Unless of course you have sprayed the hell out of it with chemicals. Yes there is such thing as TOO clean. What are some of the so called "cleanest buildings" we have? Our hospitals, yet they are home to more super bugs than any pet could possibly have. Why is that? It's quite simple. We expose those bacteria to everything while trying to clean them up. By being exposed, they become immune to those very things that once killed them. It is no different for us. If we are never exposed to anything we will never develope any immunity to them.

Hey, it is just a therory. I have no proof, so do what you want. Personally, I will let my dog sleep on the bed with me. I will eat a little clean dirt now and then. I will expose myself to as much as possible. I will never use anti bacterial anything. I will live not in fear, but will enjoy life, as short as it is...

Commenter Roger from London, UK from the article says it best...
Frankly, I don't think it's just dogs you have to worry about sleeping with. Many diseases can be caught from the people you sleep with as well!

Have a great day...

Actually you are bang on with this post. I have heard doctors on tv and the radio tell us that there is such a thing as "too clean". The more you use "disinfectant" around the house, the less chance your body will develop an immunity for diseases. My wife likes to buy the "anti bacterial" soap that is more expensive...I told her that all soap is "anti bacterial". You're paying for fear mongering. And I see that the bathtub is the latest scare tactic now, with all those 4 foot tall bacteria lurking around in there....

I'm very similar to you, and have only used antibiotics once in my life, and never finished them, cause they were driving me nuts.... It's the clean freaks who are always the sick ones...

Why does everyone in a "position" seem to want to "scare" everyone into believing their bullshit? Do they actually think this works? Ok, I guess it does on the masses of sheeple out there... Glad I was born with a brain of my own and raised to think for myself.

I think you went the wrong way with this one. Every time you read "kills 99.9% of bacteria" you should think about the implications of natural selection.

Excellent point Kevin...
