A voice of sanity! Yes! But she only scratches the surface.
Get a grip--sure, understanding the absurdity and impossibility of a microbe-free home is a good first step. But we will need much broader transformations of consciousness to live healthily with these invisible legions, the most successful forms of life on earth. We can't simply dismiss microbes. This would be about as illconceived as the germophobe insanity that is now so prevalent and lucrative for the cleaners industry. We need microbes. We need to treat them with respect and awe, and devote ourselves to living well with them. Unless this fundamental transformation in perspective can happen, our health, personally and collectively, will remain in dire jeapoardy.
