Why aren't the other 95% sick all the time?

Maybe they eat a lot of okra?:)
It's an immunity booster.

Some do get sick, regularly, but as long as they don't die from it they don't consider it serious. We've all heard people saying they had a tummy ache recently.

Different peoples bodies react differently to the same diseases/viruses.

I have one group of cousins who come down with strep-throat, also regularly, and they end up in bed,(never seeking medical help for it, either) moaning for a couple of days and then the're back on their feet, good as new.

My mom caught it from them one time and almost died. That was WITH an antibiotic prescribed!

Ever heard of Typhoid Mary?

From a recent email:

"My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.

My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e..coli.

Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

We all took gym, not PE...and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.

Flunking gym was not an option... even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.

We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

Oh yeah... and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!

We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.

Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat."

I removed what wasn't pertinent to this thread.

I did most of those things. We also drank from garden hoses, let the dogs lick our face and hands, picked candy up off the ground and ate it, all with no ill effects.

We've created our wimpy society in all manners of ways including the over use of antibiotics and removing natural selection from the equation.

Without a lot of them you'd not survive.

All I can say is that things are changing, ok? Humans are becoming a less robust species than they once were. Men all across the world are becoming less fertile than they were just 60 years ago. Children, women, we're all becoming more fragile. Many youth are now being diagnosed with diseases that were once only attributed to old age, IOWS, clogged arteries and diabetes, high blood pressure. We are fading away.
