I read the article to find out what I can do to make sure bugs don't invade my apartment. Turns out human activity does't play a big role and apparently more bugs are good for you. Gross.

Wow that's really interesting. It kind of makes sense, because that's more the natural environment our immune systems developed in.

Yeah. Pretty interesting how there is a fine line between being exposed to the right amount of disease to build a solid immunity, and full on catching a contagious disease.

It does seem like a pretty thin line, but maybe it's not as thin as we think. It's certainly an interesting subject.

Gross

Speaking of... Have you ever looked up those FDA regulations on how many bug parts are allowed in various types of foods? Depending on where and how you live, that may be the major source of bug (parts) entering your apartment.

For those who may wonder: "How much insect and rodent filth am I eating?", here is a taste of the regulations.
