Is our world that dirty?

Recommended Posts

NumaYay

Have you ever thought about the circumstance that we live in a very dirty world? We think we are humans and we live in a clean way, but that is not the case at all.

 

Personally I've become aware of the circumstance that we basically live in a big stable. Our house, the nature, other buildings, cars, and other objects are pretty dirty, even if you can't see it.

 

Take for example people at work or university or school who don't wash their hands after relieving themselves on the toilet. They keep touches things and my "infect" objects with their feces particles, or with saliva or whatever people have on their hands. You also basically walk through farts every time you are in a crowded area, you inhalate them without thinking about it.

 

The worst aspects are swimming pools or the ocean. Think about it. People are not always clean down there, so their excrement particles and urine will swim in the water, sometimes you even accidentally swallow that dirt water. Especially in the ocean where there is no chlorine (unfortunately) you basically swim in the excrements of other people because the water comes in contact with their genitals and asses.

 

Ever thought about that? Your thoughts? How do you keep your life clean?

 

Cheers!

Drink gallons of Yakult to boost your immune system, or maybe try living in a giant bubble. Both good options imo,

Oh all the time. Don't ever take university level courses in microbiology or cellular biology unless you want a real awakening to what the world around you really looks like. Swimming pools are by far not the worst; they are chlorinated for that very reason and oceans contain so many other things rather than just other peoples bodily fluids. The worst part to consider are the things you use every day without thinking about it. Door handles, shopping carts, computer keyboards, the steering wheel in your car...

 

Bacteria are everywhere. They cover every part of your skin and billions of them live in your mouth to just begin covering the matter. That doesn't have to be a bad thing, we need a lot of these different kinds of bacteria in order to live normally. Being clean is all a matter of perspective.

Funny, it actually wouldn't unless by whiskey you mean >50% ABV moonshine and by shower you mean soak in a bath.

I think about it a lot but I try not to. When leaving public bathrooms, I do try to use tissue or my sleeve when opening doors. I hate when I see other lads not washing after peeing. I'm not Bob Wiley levels of caution but I do think about it when I'm in public spaces.

I keep basic care of my own hygiene(wash hands, shower everyday 2 days, brush my teeth three times a day) but I'm not paranoid to think about all the germs and bacteria surrounding me.

 

Firstly because we all have an immunity system in our bodies that is very effective, as long as we have a healthy diet(or just don't forget to eat the essentials) and dint get sick often, with this in mind I know I'm safe.

 

Secondly, because it just way too much germs and bacterias, everywhere, so it's almost impossible to avoid it all the time.

 

So I just don't think about it.

By the title it sounded like those "the world's governments are so corrupt" things. And I hope you never come to São Paulo's downtown.

 

This is one of those things you can do nothing about it, so you can only ignore it. Who cares if cellphones and bank notes contain fecal matter? What are you going to do? Wash every single coin and bank note you have? Go to a bank with a bottle of alcohol and clean everything? Take people's phones to clean them? Live inside an astronaut suit?

 

Unless you have the weakest immune system ever, just forget about it.

Always been like this and we all somehow survive.

If you lived your entire life in a 100% clean room and ate 100% clean food and stepped outside for the first time, you'd either die or get sick as f*ck. Your body wouldn't even know how to react.

 

Your immune system is there to protect you from all kinds of nasty things. Even when you get sick, it's just your body fighting against the bacteria and viruses. Humans are quite a powerhouse, as long as they take good care of themselves.

When you think about it, we've never been cleaner. Sure, with modern developments and advancements in bacteria there is probably more opportunity to fall ill but our bodies are better equipped to fight infection than ever before. You hear about antibiotics slowly becoming redundant to some of the more deadly strains of infection but I do believe humans are more resistant to some illnesses that would have floored people completely even just decades ago.

 

I think there's a line though. It's good to practice good hygiene and be aware of bacteria. Of course it is, but I imagine it's easy to get lost down this rabbit hole of feeling unclean and not being able to live life through fear of catching something untoward from a toilet door handle or a stair banister. I say just crack on with life and let your body do it's job.

Menstrual Deranged

This is something I think about literally all the time, especially when I'm out in public. The first thing I do when I get to work (I'm a NICU nurse) is wipe my entire work area, IV pumps, my patient's crib and bedside, etc, with hospital-grade cleaning wipes. I don't stop at work either. When I'm home, I clean frequently-touched objects with hospital-grade cleaning wipes I ordered off Amazon (chlorine-based or hydrogen peroxide-based), especially if someone in the house has been sick. Frequently-touched objects include cellphones, remotes, doorknobs, faucet handles, light switches, and even the steering wheels and gear shifter in the cars). I keep hand sanitizer in my purse and cars. I wear rubber gloves when I pump gas. I wipe down grocery cart handles. By the way, studies have shown that gas pump handles and grocery cart handles are probably the dirtiest objects out in public--maybe even more so than public restrooms.

 

I make a conscious effort to touch as few things as possible when I'm out. I avoid touching my face. I wash my hands frequently, especially if I've just gotten home, used the restroom, or am about to eat.

 

Some of this might sound extreme but I stay pretty healthy for the most part. We regularly get kids where I work who have some pretty nasty, contagious stuff and I haven't caught anything from them in years. We're talking yellow, slimy pseudamonas and rhinovirus/enterovirus-laced tracheotomy snot being shot at my face, okay? Part of that is probably just built-up immunity on my part, though. Last year my daughter had a nasty stomach virus and we all know how contagious those are. She missed the toilet once and got my carpet. I gloved-up, wore a mask, and scrubbed the floor with paper towel and hydrogen peroxide spray. I was careful to seal anything disposable that had vomit on it up in plastic bags and put it right outside in the trash, since small water molecules potentially carrying the virus can become airborne and be inhaled. Everything else in the vicinity got wiped down with chlorine, then I took a shower. FYI, one of the reasons why whole families catch a stomach bug from each other is because they don't know how to properly isolate and kill the virus. Gastroenteritis is often caused by viruses like norovirus and the best way to kill that is with chlorine. If someone has it, they need to try to stay away from the rest of the family, wash their hands frequently, and whatever they're sick in needs to be cleaned ASAP with bleach using at least a 3-minute dwell time (you know, toilets, buckets, etc.) The virus can still be present in stool for up to a week or two after they'r sick so it's probably a good idea to spray bleach in the toilet after they use it during that time.

 

Well I sound like a f*cking crazy person now. Just..do whatever you guys want as far as germs go.

 

Just please please wash your hands after you sh*t or piss, okay? That's good enough for non-medical people who haven't been driven to OCD like me.

No, you don't. The way I see it is that it's to be expected in your field of profession. Okay you might go further than some people but it doesn't make you crazy, you're not only thinking of yourself but other people also.

I can relate. I work in healthcare and everything has to be absolutely spot on as far as my work environment goes. I'm a little more relaxed out of work because I have a feeling I'd have a thromboembolism otherwise. Because my clientele are elderly, they're more susceptible to germs and viral infections. Similarly, I'm an ideal carrier in what is essentially a melting pot of ill health and infection. I'm proud to say that I've never taken anything to work, and I've never brought anything serious back home with me either.

I never use my sleeve but I always use paper towels or toilet paper to touch public restroom door handles. One of the first things I do when going to an unfamiliar bar or restaurant is find out where there's a bin to dispose of the paper towels/TP. I've seen too many pissheads refuse to wash their hands after taking a pish to take the risk.

Knowing about germs, and stressing over it, especially, does not elongate your lifespan.

 

As long as you do basic sh*t like brush your teeth, wash your hands and stay away from other sick people, you'll be fine. Germs are everywhere and that's just a part of life that has been long before you were born and will continue long after you're gone.
