I've always been amazed at this line of logic (the perpetuators of this
idea, not yours in particular Josh :). It would just have to be some
resulting product that sounds nice and sterilizing (get a cut, pour some
H2O2 on it)... Rather than the issue sessile bacteria and algae have had
available suface area and habitat GREATLY INCREASED to give them the
advantage to utilize nutrients in the water over their film and pelagic

But as long as it works, I guess there really no reason to rock the boat
over the "why" :)

And if people are willing to pay $12 for a lunch bag of straw... Vivent
longtemps l'iconomie!
