    Heh.  What do you think makes the pumpkin pies at Monkey so tasty?

     I suggest you serve both pumpkin pies, and pizza with everything

      Nothing is effective 100%.  Back to the argument earlier, risk management is about doing the best you can with what you have and what you know.

       

      I have nothing against running fresh tap water over a toothbrush.  Water fresh from the tap is great.  It is drinking it out of a dirty glass that is dangerous.

       

      I have never really thought about the cleanliness of toothpaste.  Personally, I don't use it.  Not because it's not clean, but because it doesn't actually do anything.

          risk management is about doing the best you can with what you have and what you know.

           

          It foremost, however, about knowing where the real risk lies.  Clean glasses are not it.

              Guys.  Please stop derailing the thread with internet pictures and lame one-liners.  Keep that stuff in the swamp.

               

              Trent and I are trying to have a serious scientific debate here.

              And I contest, that nothing reusable that touches our mouth is clean unless we have impeccable habits about cleanliness that never fail.  And having the option to use something hermetic sealed and disposable, vs something that is very difficult to keep clean, I will choose the hermetic sealed option.

                I keep a water glass by my sink for days at a time.  When I want a drink I use this glass again and again.  I live on the edge.

                  How many of you are succeeding?  Nobody is debating that reusable drinking glasses/bottles/whathaveyou are not "clean", it seems like we're all saying we don't care.

                    And it is certainly your choice to live on the edge if you do so choose.  I only am here to help you make an informed decision.

                     

                     

                    However, now that we have taken healthcare as a national initiative and the society as a whole will be more responsible for the health of individuals, I sincerely hope that more people think about this issue and do not go down the reckless path that you have chosen for yourself.

                          What is your fascination with the arbitrary "clean".  Your body has an amazing ability to deal with the world around you and all the nastiness it contains.

                          If you think you're "clean" (as in not covered in swarms of bacteria and dirt), you are wrong.

                            I do not have a fascination with anything.  I merely try to do the best I can.

                             

                             

                            Yes I agree that the body has an amazing ability to combat pathogens.  But does that mean I should go swimming in the sewer just to test it?

                             

                             

                            I could right now, go buy a raw chicken breast from a company that sources from factory farms, and eat it.  As I understand it, there is about a 65% chance of it being infected with salmonella (this is off the top of my head).   As a healthy adult with a strong immune system, it is likely that I would neutralize the bacteria before I got sick. 

                             

                            But does that mean that we should eat raw chicken?  There is always an outside chance of getting sick, and if the cost of preventing it is so cheap, why not just do it?

                             

                             

                             

                            Face the facts, drinking from reusable containers is not worth the risk, when there are other options available for negligible cost.
