No I don't have the source anymore, I remember it only because it was 
not what I expected.  The time frame was 48 hours.  I also remember it 
because the people doing the study were also surprised and they could 
not account for what agent within the wood cutting boards was killing 
the bacteria.

Other sources have posted that they can and do put plastic cutting 
boards in the dishwasher to sterilize them which would of course trash 
wood boards.

Your salmonella statistic is quite interesting since many people believe
that meat should not be cut on wood boards.  Could you emsil me the
reference source for the info?  Also, it would be nice to know the time
frame for "5 times longer".  If the time frame is several hours it may
not make a difference.  Also, do you happen to know how easy it is to
wash off the bacteria.  Either way, I clean my board (wood or plastic)
well after cutting any type of meat.  Some of this is out of sensitivity
for the resident vegitarians.

                        Thanks, Greg
