An article of Dear Abby's today states that there is less bacteria
in a dog's mouth than on the back of a baby's hand and in a toliet
COMBINED.  To which Abby agress.  The writter states " anyone with
a year of high school biology would know" and Abby states "this is true, as hundreds
of readers tell me."
Well, I think this is absolute BS.  On of the URBAN Myths, but I don't 
have any hard data to back me up.  Could some of the learnned people 
here help me out?  Comments?
