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".
