Mostly nonsense, occasionally stamping out microbiological inumeracy, making food safer, and making podcasts.

@rstevens Y @emersunn Microbes ARE everywhere, but I don't want to wash my hands and add millions of bacteria, because someone cheaped out on soap. @emersunn Yes, but given a 10% failure rate, I would suggest that bulk soap is a bad idea, and that it be prohibited in public bathrooms. @emersunn Excellent question. Most nonpathogenic. Some opportunistic pathogens (a risk to the immunocompromised) and a few were pathogens.Disclaimer: The study was partially funded by a company that sells soap in single use bags. a sample was contaminated, it often contained more than 1 million bacteria per ML of soap. study found more than 10% of all bulk soap in almost 300 samples across three states contaminated with bacteria. soap and dispensers can contain very high bacterial concentrations, and outbreaks have occurred in health… in an effort to save money, the proprietor will dilute that soap. When diluted, it becomes susceptible to… @danbenjamin 1) a bit long and complex for Twitter, but here's my best shot: public soap is sometimes in a refillable bulk dispensers.Re: Ep 60 @roadworkshow @danbenjamin @johnroderick I have unpublished research on bulk soap, it's a real concern.
I can't recall ever meeting a person who wasn't persuaded by anecdotal data.

Retweeted by Don Schaffner ☣️ @InkpotGames @muskrat_john Uphill! Both ways!Thanks @AlexCox for recommending Very enjoyable.I think you are doing it wrong @MaxTemkin @TheKidKidDoc Yeah, they don't really understand dose-response either. I mean some of them do @jlc232 for example, I bet she does.Actually one is enough. I really wish more microbiologists understood dose-response models.
@AcademicsSay how much just to rent?
