"animals in the wild survive perfectly well surrounded by all kinds of dirt and bacteria"

Depends on your definition of perfectly well. I long subscribed to the "you don't need X because we survived perfectly well without it before modern times / in the old country", until it was pointed out to me that life expectancy before modern times / in the old country was late 40's and people suffer(ed) from horrible diseases that can be easily remedied.

  • Destiny is my science fiction movie about the future of humanity. It's an epic, similar in breadth and scope to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
