I live in an old neighborhood, and I mean old! Yet every once in awhile I will dig up an old hospital type medical bottle with a cork top usually medical alcohol or some such thing (I think it must be land fill from around World War I).
Fact is, you never know where the dirt under or around your house came from (you see, they bring it in from other places to level building sites).
If it's around my house it must be an ancient practice. If I ever find any old Native American Medicine Man artfacts you'll be the first to know.
My point is that I've never had any medical problems related to such things (oh I suppose I could worry myself into something) but for now (at 82) I guess I've had a pretty good run. From my children down to the Great Grand Grizzlers the knowledge not to pick up needles and the likes has been taught.
When I blow the dust of the Old Book, it says that we are all allotted a certain amount of days (of course we all have to be careful) but apart from caution we can do no more.
I think sometimes enotional thought rules our headlines in order to end practices reporters want to see stopped (such as fracking in this case).
