We believe wood is definitely superior to plastic, glass and marble. Our opinion is strongly validated by an increasing amount of research, with many studies showing conclusive evidence and results.
One such study conducted by Professor Dean Cliver, a microbiologist at the University of California, conducted tests using the bacteria E. coli as a contaminant.
The conclusion of the results was that plastic came a definite last-and that’s because bacteria are able to breed in the cuts left by knives.
Marble and Glass came in equal second because bacteria spread everywhere. Both also lost points because they are tough on knives.
Wood was the definite winner, which came as no surprise to Professor Cliver. In many similar experiments, wood has always been a winner.
