We live in a anti-bacterial world… promoted by the antibacterial industry…
the chemical industry.

Since the 1990s, antimicrobial agents have been added to plastic and paper products. Also added to rubber. The “new smell” is caused by antibacterial chemicals.
The chemical residue causes indoor air pollution.
Chemical-coated products make the air stuffy, and less breathable.
Airborne chemicals cause inflammation… inflame tissue and organs. Inflame the heart lungs brain etc… and can cause swelling of the lungs and brain.

Antibacterial chemicals decrease immune function… like antibiotics.
And antimicrobial chemicals contain artificial hormones (estrogen) and are carcinogen.
Cause cancer, and increase the growth of cancer… like growth hormones and steroids.
Cause female reproductive cancers, breast cancer and other cancers.

Antimicrobial chemicals cause inflammation (chemical burn)… decrease immune function, and increase hormones in the bloodstream.
Inflammation damage, low immune function, and a high-level of hormones in the body… is the recipe for cancer.

Biocides (poison) applied to most products, like pesticides on apples. Including objects
handled by children (leaves chemical residue on their hands) and they put things in their mouths. The chemicals are inhaled ingested and absorbed by skin. Airborne chemicals cause dry throat, and can inflame throat and lungs.

Antibacterial chemicals are not safe. It causes indoor air pollution,
and causes harm. Harms the health of adults children and pets. Harms the sick and elderly.
It harms everyone… all creatures great and small.

The marketplace has become inundated with antimicrobial chemicals.
It started with garbage bags in the late 1990s… Glad kitchen garbage bags… and it spread to almost everything.
Probably for marketing reasons… the chemical industry has no conscience.
