How Health “Improvements” Make You Worry

I was just at the grocery store.  Now, they offer you disposable cleaning wipes to wipe down your cart handle and avoid germs.  Seems like a good idea, but it makes you wonder if this has been a problem for years.

A few weeks ago, I was at the dentist.  When they went to take a picture of my teeth they covered me in the standard protective “blanket”, but this time they also gave me a new cover for my throat.  Again, this made me wonder whether I’ve been exposed for years and at risk.

Of course, we get smarter over time, but I found it interesting that it makes us (me) more aware of issues that have existed as they make these improvements to the process.
