    Some ago I was listening to a programme on Radio 4,an Austrian professor in medicine made a comment about kids picking their noses,what he explained was through this habit kids were investing germs of all kinds ,he stated that this built up resistance to diseases.He could have a point.

    I believe as long as you kept your hands on top of the desk you were ok.

    It may come out in the future that those hand sanitisers could well be carcinogenic...who knows. Medical science changes constantly quite often depending on who is funding the research.
    Like all things, moderation is the key don't be overly germ averse and visa versa, just common sense and a mother's instincts.
    Hi Victoria.
    So true about the research, when my wife was expecting our first, a boy, she had terrible morning sickness, the Dr asked if she wanted the latest pill that had come out, she said no I 'll cope somehow, the pill was Thalidomide, to this day our son is still thankful for his mum suffering for him.

    Her in doors has a habit, maybe a good one.
    Any time our GP puts her on a pill of any sort the first thing she does it look it up to see all the side effects.
    If they look a bit iffy then she will not take them.

    Couple she has taken have shown side effects as registered so stop taking them.

    Then there is the problem with some medication of how it will effect things such as driving or having a drink.
    The no drink ones do not go down well here.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
