Another rerun from back in 2009 when we were on the radio. Dr. Ensign, a chiropractor, interested in health, came to share best ideas for mothers.However, he didn’t recommend using that sticky alchohol stuff. It will kill some germs, but the rest are given a nice home.
Lots of the best preschools in the land make handwashing a standard routine for their little ones. Indeed, in order to keep the handwashing going, the alphabet song is encouraged, in order time the washing. Try out such ideas to make handwashing fun and regular.
In introductory Biology in high school, we learned that germs don’t grow on clean surfaces. That is why gyms would have towels to wipe off the equipment: so germs couldn’t grow in the wet. However, now, go into any gymn, (if you can stand the soup of chemicals in the air) and check to see if the equipment is not sticky. Besides, no one is considering what chemicals they are regularly putting in their body through their skin.
Fear makes you do all sorts of silly things. Instead, think.
Washing hands, with soap and water, prevents a lot of diseases. Studies show that children who wash their hands,and scrub their names miss less time from school, and (maybe therefore) have better grades. So much for what sociologists and epidemiologists can measure. The point is, being healthy is a good idea for being smart. And, okay fine, the argument for reverse causation could be made. Still, the point is: wash those hands.
This post seems to be timely, because Dr. Stella Immanuel has put out a new product to prepare for hemmorhagic fevers like ebola and Marburg. I saw in another social media post that someone is now claiming that ebola also came out of a lab. Look, I do not know about that claim. What I do know is that washing hands is a good idea. So is being healthy. Further, I have found great benefit (both in terms of health and budget) in herbal preparations and vitamins. Check it out for yourself. Also, see my GSB4Grans tab, where I pass long some info from people whom I trust (Enlows) and an organization that cites peer reviewed journals (Life Extension.)
