Some people do some disgusting things in public...?

A: There are so many things that bug me! Sneezing and coughing without covering are definately two of them. Also, when they sneeze or cough into their bare hands and immediately touch something in the store - then they don''t even get it! Please people, cough and sneeze into the elbow, upper arm, or shoulder of your shirts if you do not have a tissue handy. Another thing is general uncleanlyness - especially in the stores. I understand if you work on a farm or something and your clothes aren''t going to be spotless. But you could at least clean up your face, hands, and arms. Even if you are just sweaty - I don''t want to see sweat role down your face and drip into a fresh head of lettuce! I am also grossed out by

Is hand sanitizing soap organic?

A: Is hand sanitizing soap organic? Why would you care? You don''t need it. Your hands are constantly in touch with your environment and despite the best efforts of those marketing and making huge profits from ''germ-killing'' preparations your body is, in normal circumstances, pretty well self-cleansing. Unless you obsessively wash your hands each time you touch any surface or any other person or pet, you''re wasting your time and money searching for the ''right'' product to keep you clean. You are clean; you were born that way and water is more or less all that''s needed to maintain that cleanliness. A wash with liquid soap - the cheapest will do - and a good rinse followed by a thorough towel-dry, or air-dry if you live in a warm climate,...

how does a puppy get a staph infection, how is it transferred to humans, does being allergic have anything to do with it,

A: If you''re referring to Staph aureus, these bacteria are very common in animals and people as well as common in the soil. In the past, they were more likely to create problems with younger animals because they lacked a fully developed immune response. Even though many adults harbored the bacteria and could pass it on, they showed no clinical signs themselves.  Since the 1950s, however, there''s been an increase in antibiotic-resistant S. aureus infections to the point this has become a problem in animals and humans alike.
