I published an op-ed today in the Tampa Bay Times on the game theory of antibacterial resistance, and the harmful role played by firms (like Bath & Body Works) who still infuse their liquid hand soaps with the pesticide and antibaterial agent known as triclosan. The bottom line for readers: stop buying so-called “antibacterial” soap!
