I don't want to get into a back and forth but we are talking about rinsing off "God knows what and how much" when it comes to a flesh wound vs rinsing off k-meta sanitizing solution from a piece of equipment. (I think that was the initial premise) Why rinse off the same sanitizer that you are scooping into the wine? If you want to stop sanitizing and start rinsing with water and relying on the k-meta that you put directly into the wine I guess that would be your choice. To me sanitizing isn't that much more work. And one caveat about that study. Are we to assume every well, cistern, creek, reservoir, etc. across the world meet the same standards as that at Stanford University?
