Of course there are reasons to take infants with you everywhere. Everything is a learning opportunity but we don't have to put them in danger to teach them about the world.
We risk our lives just by walking out the door and getting into a car, by getting on a bike, by eating food, walking down the street, everything. As long as proper precautions are taken like stated above, I don't think it should be an issue or considered child endangerment (as stated in the OP).
