antibacterial soaps

Everywhere you look in the store, there are "antibacterial" products. There are antibacterial soaps, antibacterial cleaning products, antibacterial baby wipes, etc. Have you ever bought any of these products? All of these products advertise that they kill the bacteria that cause disease, therefore you are safer when you use these products. On the other hand, every time you turn around, there is another strain of antibiotic resistant bacteria developing for which we have no effective treatment. Some authorities state that these antibacterial products do no good and only contribute to the development of these strains of bacteria, while other sources assert that these products help protect us from harmful diseases.
