Do you believe there is a danger involved in the over use of antibiotic hand cleaners and sanitizers


It seems that everywhere we look there are anti-bacterial products and sanitizers. Baby wipes, hand soap, dish washing liquid, etc. I have 2 concerns; 1 there are a lot of beneficial bacteria living on our skin, and 2 wont these bacteria gradually develop a resistance to these anti-bacterial products and become problematic? I avoid this stuff myself. Yeah, it is important to keep clean but I avoid products that are "anti-bacterial"
