TODAY'S HEALTH TIP -- WASH YOUR HANDS.

Posted: 01.25.2016
Frequent handwashing is one of the best defenses against getting or spreading colds or the flu. Cold and flu viruses are spread when a sick person coughs or sneezes and droplets carrying germs land on their hands or surfaces. When you come into contact with germ-covered surfaces, proper handwashing prevents the spread of these germs from your hands to your nose or mouth. In a study, military recruits were told to wash their hands five times a day. After 2 years, they had 45% fewer cases of respiratory illness compared to the sickness rate of previous recruits. Use alcohol-based sanitizers when you can't wash your hands.
