Diseased Toothbrush

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Until I read the instructions for this product, I didn't know my toothbrush was the "ideal environment for the growth of salmonella, micrococcus bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms."
In two weeks of use, I haven't come down with salmonella, amoebic dysentery, or any other horrible toothbrush-related illness. That's a good sign, right?

dunno about you guys, but i've not come down with any of those diseases yet. seems a bit of a waste to start sterilizing my toothbrush now. still, interesting idea. definately one of those up there with the "digital sun-dial".
