Birthday Cake and GermsAre we taking this “germ” thing a bit too far?

Check out this story out of Australia. A ruling is being enacted for daycares that prohibit kids from bringing in a birthday cake. They suggest individual cupcakes  with candles to stop the spread of germs. Along with blowing out the candles, the law also states that children should wash their hands off with hand sanitizer before and after eating.

Now, I hesitate to post this information, because some people will probably switch to cupcakes in the future. I think more education is needed as to how we can build our immune system naturally and make sure that we are living a healthy, safe life. Sometimes, I think this message gets overlooked.
