9. Oh yes, I know the kind of people you're talking about

They over disinfect everything, not realizing that we need bacteria to live. The Smithsonian Channel did an excellent program a few years ago called "Aliens Within Us" about the trillions of microorganisms that live within each person. We could not survive without them. They went to the Amazon where DNA samples of a remote group showed how drastic the microbial imbalance in the Western world has become. The more people in the West sanitized everything, the greater the imbalance and the more likely they were to become sick. That would probably include the people "who always use a tissue to open a public restroom door".
