DID YOU KNOW?
Granite has the same bacteria growth rating as stainless steel. Can bacteria grow in your Natural Stone counter tops, technically yes, but it is about the same as bacteria growing on your stainless steel surfaces, relatively non-existent. The Man-Made stone industries started add campaigns such as this one to boost the sales of their Man-Made stone products. Lots of their claims are technically true but the adds make it seem like it is something to be concerned about when it is actually NOT. Another example is Radon. I'm sure some of you remember or have heard people talk about the article and adds telling you that your granite counter tops are producing Radon Radiation and you needed to be careful. Well that is actually true. Everything in nature produces Radon Radiation. Wood, Dirt, Trees, the real fact is that you would have to build your entire house out of granite in order to receive more Radon Radiation than you receive each day now from the 2x4's that were used in the construction of your home. It is NOT something that should concern you at all.
