All I know is that since I've been washing my hands often and vigorously with soap, I haven't been sick for over a year now.

could be mere chance but washing your hands definitely reduces the risk of infection.

Actually, now that I think about it further, I haven't been out there in the working world much this past year, so my exposure has been reduced greatly.

Actually washing your hands is quite important. Soap and water is better than any fancy disinfectant. Back when they realized how important hygiene is a whole lot of diseases diminished. Of course they say it's the vaccines that did it, but it isn't.

I wash my hands upon returning from any public place, and back when the swine flu was floating around, I became conscious not to rub my eyes or put my hands near my face until they were washed.
We usually keep a bottle of hand sanitizer in case of emergency, or when we want to smell like we've been drinking vodka. chuckle.gif

don't underestimate vaccines... they're one of the best things that happened to humanity.

I wash my hands frequently throughout the day. Not to the point of OCD, but like just now I made hotdog buns and I don't need dough on my keyboard, so I washed them, thoroughly both before and after.

That's wise jb, because from what I've read hospitals and perhaps clinics too, really don't clean very well. I hope all goes well at the clinic for you. hug.gif

I always wash my hands before cooking or eating and always after certain other daily activities.
