I don't understand the risk involved in cutting F/S
without gloves.

It seems to me that anyone with intact skin and a
normal immune system would be better off without
them.  That way if you got cut the bleeding would carry
any contaminants away from the wound instead of
having the glove holding the blood against the cut.

Besides which, most tissue for F/S comes from inside
the body, an environment which is very clean.

Anyway, there aren't any bacteria, viruses, prions or
aerosols which I know of that can penetrate i an intact

Are the risks of cutting F/S without gloves real and
documentable or are they just theoretical?

Hoping for some lively discussion
