RE: Amber May Release Ancient Disease-Causing Microbes

Isn't this fear a bit on the paranoid side?  I'm not intending to be insulting
here, just want to make a point.  

I would imagine that any bacteria trapped in amber, or any other substance, may
escape regardless of human intervention.  Amber will erode if exposed, it can
break.  Human activity may make it more likely, but does it really pose a threat
that would otherwise not exist?
