Off Topic / Re: More evidence of interbreeding with Neanderthals

Probably needs a more comic book presentation for appreciation.

Some sort of family tree schematic.

Where did the neanderthals come from?

I don't obsessively wash.  I just wash before I eat.  And I tell my children to wash before they eat.

Also wash if you've handled something dirty like mechanical work, grease and all that.

As for fruit, we have an ozonator if we aren't sure.

Off Topic / More evidence of interbreeding with Neanderthals

"Scientists have long suspected that modern humans and our ancient Neanderthal cousins interbred, and now DNA evidence shows that it did occur, and dates when it occurred, researchers say. ..."

Well then, if your reason is OCD and washing makes you feel right, then do it. It's not perfectly harmless, but it is relatively harmless.

I have this weird OCD kinda hard to explain. It happens with me a lot with health.

Its like my mind needs to know when to wash my hands and when not to and it wants some healthy person or "guru" to tell me when to and when not to.  Right now I pretty much think about this all day.   I go to the gym and think "should I be washing my  hands before moving to the next machine?"  or just at the end of my workout?   Entering the bathroom "should I wash before after or both"

Cant really seem to shake it

I had this obsession with cookware in the past where I asked a million people and searched for the least toxic cookware and dinnerware.   Ive also had this with washing fruits off.  Questioning constantly how I should be doing it

... I have always wondered if I should be washing my hands everytime right after I do something or handle something.  Or if I should keep washing in my routine of before eating, after bathroom and when dirty looking.

You really didn't specify why you are asking if you should wash your hands "everytime" right after I do something, and why is really what determines if you wash or not.

As nummi pointed out, fear of germs causes many people to wash very frequently. In reality, a little dirt won't hurt you, even if it gets in your mouth. Other factors are: will you be soiling things that you touch? will you look too unclean for work if you don't wash? do your hands feel sticky?

I aim for as little washing as possible because it disrupts the defenses of the skin. That leaves me with washing only when I have a reason to wash, a reason like not wanting to get other things dirty if I touch them with soiled hands.

I just use my hands so much.  I play basketball and football, sports, etc...

Looks like ISIS has attacked Canada :-

I was pretty certain that Israel had started all these wars in order to destabilise the Middle-East and thereby gain "Greater Israel". Now, however, we may even see the Muslims eventually win against the West, who knows?

I only use soap on hands when they get some nasty or hard to get rid of stuff on them. Otherwise just water.

Washing hands because of fright of becoming sick is mainstream created nonsense. It is unrealistic. As we are surrounded by "lethal" bacteria and other microorganisms each and every moment of our lives from birth till death, no matter whether hands are washed or not. Plus mouth has very high defensive mechanisms against bad microorganisms anyway.
This "becoming sick because not washing hands" essentially only applies some bit to those who have no awareness over dieting or health, thus they eat all kinds of body and mind destroying crap. And so they will be susceptible to everything from anywhere. But in truth even in their case washing hands "due to fright of becoming ill" is pointless as they will become ill one way or another whether they do it or not.

Try to remove fluoride from your life as much as you can, as this substance is only poison to human body.
