We've all heard what follows, we've even been told that being too clean can actually make us more vulnerable to diseases down the road, so why do we keep insisting on paying more—for nothing more?

The Real Dirt on Antibacterial Soaps.

Byline: -Anne Underwood

"Antibacterial soaps are no better than regular soap. Experts have said so for years. But that hasn't stopped millions of Americans from snapping up the supposedly superior germ killers--now 76 percent of the liquid-soap market."

Go ahead, check it out. There are countless articles and studies verifying these facts.

So where did this incessant need to keep dirt off our hands and bodies come from? In a word—ADVERTISING.

You will never be in touch with nature and Mother Earth...if you never touch her!

Isn't it a fact? I grew up eating dirt, playing with dirt, and going to sleep on dirt.. I love it! That is why Cascabel is so appealing to me. I love the feeling of dirt between my hand, the smell of it, and the miracles that can come out of it when playing or working with it. I crawl out of my skin when I see or hear and mother telling her kid " Don't play with dirt, it is yucky" " La ignorancia es la madre de todos los vicios"
