I started this thread for those times when you come across something you find interesting but it doesn't necessarily deserve it's own thread and doesn't really belong anywhere else...

today mine was this

What a good idea!!! I seem to read the strangest articles and want to show people, but no clue where to post it!

^China exports a ton of 'one size fits all' clothing, and it's a much truer statement for their own populace. My guess is the vast majority of clothes in that 'size' here are from there, on the exceptional cheap.

I really like that the women in the test group were all different sizes.

also - rhinoceros sized??? wow

and lastly, I had to google pics of this, and found this cartoon

I know — isn't it fascinating how they've evolved to have a backwards pouch? Plus the hindquarters info was new to me.

Gross but interesting...

Farts can actually spread pathogens, particularly Streptococcus pyogenes which can cause illness ranging from strep throat to heart disease. Fecal particles can go airborne with flatulence. The fact people wear clothes helps protect us a great deal. I'd actually wondered about that before but thought 'naaaah, there's a reason why I've never heard about it."

...And now you know something you may wish you didn't

Because people who are in a position to help others and do so are my favorite kind of people. (Also if they're nice to animals.)

I know I'll get flamed for this but...I'm not advocating, just reporting what I was told (hiding to avoid rocks).

A nurse told me that all this handwashing doesn't actually accomplish anything and is a ploy by soap companies. She said handwashing is very important in hospitals where they are dealing with dangerous and atypical pathogens, but all this handwashing when we use the toilet is a waste unless we have actually soiled our hands and counterproductive because we are destroying the natural acid mantle of our skin which is protective against germs.

Meanwhile, a doc told me that we are covered in e-coli five minutes after washing any skin...so there you go!
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.

^ I'm off to google more info about this^^

I know I've read that with all of our antibiotic soaps and wipes have caused an increase in auto immune diseases (which is interesting to me, because I have one)

ETA: I found several articles that say water washing is good - that the soap dries out the protective barrier making it easier for germs to enter. And that those fill-up bottles of soap (the pumps, you can buy the big refill bottles for) - can cause up to a 26% INCREASE in germs (due to contamination of the soap itself)

Okay, so the conclusion is that we should water wash only? Even after cleaning up after pets?

http://geaugadoggy.wordpress.com
Nah. At least not for me. I still use soap and water, but I've never been all that worried about germs.

Anyway, this contrarian view that the nurse held interested me in light of the many on this site who don't use ordinary shampoo.

ETA: I would definitely wash with soap after cleaning up after a pet, but I'm not going to worry about farts (see Sew and Sew's post).

I think the gist was that for regular washing, a thorough water wash with vigorous rubbing (that you should do with soap, same thing) is adequate. That soap bars and refillable soaps can give you more germs. To use soap after diapers and stuff (so I assume pets) but especially if you see your hands are contaminated with something (i.e. dog poop).

I'll still use soap but my hands get really dry so it's good to know a water wash is fine. They also said stuff about alcohol based hand disinfectant but I can't remember it all.

Something I've been curious about...How Lodge cast iron skillets are made.

Someone told me you're supposed to wash your hands with soap and water for the amount of time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday to You" twice. It's just good, clean fun!
