Popular belief told us during many decades that plastic was superior to wood in terms of food hygiene. We use to say that plastic was less favorable to bacteria, so more secure for health. A 1994 scientific study took by surprise the entire food industry! The results showed that wood is far more effective than plastic at eliminating pathogenic bacteria. The study was conducted by two microbiologists from the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences in the United States and proved that wood is capable of killing bacteria, something that plastic can't. Scientists found that only 3 minutes after contaminating a wooden cutting board, 99.9% of bacteria were dead. In the case of plastic, none was eliminated.
