Today, my mom has gone completely insane and insists we only flush the toilet or wash our hands at the start or end of the day, "to save on bills." My young sister thinks it's the best idea ever. My mom makes our food, and my sister just loves to touch everyone's faces. FML
nightbirdblue tells us more :
I know. I tried to explain, but that got me screamed at. My mom accused me of acting like the parent and cussed me out.

There's building up an immune system, and then there are completely unhygienic practices such as this. You can't even remotely compare the two as similar.

Ebola is suspected to be harbored by bats in an area in africa. They have yet to find the natural resevoir. Plus, spread of Ebola is by contact with an actively infected person, so the fever and generally the starting of or active degredation of the body. Or exposure to the natural resevoir by bite, fecal matter etc. Plague can be spread by fact (sorry microbiology major...virus and pathogenic bacteria love here). The OP, risks E.Coli from fecal matter on her moms hands when she prepares food. And a stinky stinky house. Have you ever smelled pee when it sits in the toilet for awhile? ew!

They all risk E.Coli from their food anyway, unless they only buy organic, free run, humanely killed meat from a local farmer, or they're vegetarian. They're probably more likely to get it now, but the possibility was still always there.

You can still get E.Coli from your organic vegetables and humanel killed meat too. Being all rightous with your food doesn't protect you from bacteria, unless you want to irradiate it before you eat it, sorry, it is going to have bacteria on it.
