Doc has it right: what we're being told to do will only compromise our immune systems, which should tell you that those telling us (population control, anyone?) have nefarious purposes. Hand sanitizer is mostly ethanol. If you're short on it, or can't afford it, just spray gasoline on your hands the next time you fill up. Seriously, listening to these "experts" is terrible for your health. Have a trouble? Rub good dirt on it. Ethanol is for the chariot, and pure gas is for the classic chariot. These experts are for the birds.
