I’m new here… first post actually.

My take has always been to never use any softwood on cuttingboards. If they are endgrain, you also don’t want to use any wood with large pores that are capable of pulling fluid through them easily. Like redoak.

I personally have never researched it so I haven’t read any studies… however, I have watched more than a few videos by vlogers who have and discouraged it. I don’t have any links offhand and running short on time but pretty sure the Woodwhisperer has a video on it as well various methods of sealing your boards to maximize protection from bacteria.
