5. We have to end the war against bacteria


We literally couldn't exist without them.

Yes, some are problematic, but definitely not all. But our antibiotics kill ALL. Not good to get rid of all the gid ones too, and not good to allow the bad ones to develop immunity and resistance.

Bacteria have been found at the base of volcanic plumes under the ocean!

An article I read some time ago implied that there are skin bacteria that actually HELP against the skin bacteria that cause odors! (In which case bathing "infrequently," as happens in some cultures, wouldn't be such a terrible thing.) They're mostly long gone thanks to all our soaps and esp. antibacterials.

People in the trenches have found that diets that restore gut health (which always includes beneficial bacteria) have much better success with things like ADHD and assorted other problems.

So I hope this effort will begin the process of ending that war on bacteria.
