If surface areas spread the flu, then why...

If surface areas spread the flu, then why don't you get the flu when you pump gas, or take merchandise off of grocery store shelves, or open and close your car door?

What about the clothes in your closet, and what about your shoes? Have you ever picked up an article of clothing while shopping because you just know that there are dust and microbes floating in the air and landing on every single item.

Certainly your car seat is infested.

Now you could wipe them down, but you realize that each and every hour they are covered in viruses and bacteria once again.. Do you wipe down your lamps every five minutes? Do you really think the hardware store is free of viruses?

And do you wipe down your mail? Let's not forget the clothing you're wearing right now. They are covered in germs.

But you don't get sick, do you!! That's because the hand washing protection myth is a scam of the first order. If you have a wound, sure wash it. And wash after you go to the bathroom, or have handled food, or your hands have gotten dirty somehow.

But washing your hands to avoid the flu is TOTALLY unnecessary. You touch things all day long. Those things have viruses on them. Yet you are safe and healthy!

This thread should come with a health and safety warning.

It's not only completely wrong, it's also disgusting.

When I return from the grocery or any public place for that matter, washing the hands is the first thing I do.

The biggie is keep your hands away from your eyes, nose and face for that matter.

I wouldn't want anyone that's anti hand washing to fix me dinner. coffeetime.gif

Do you touch anything? Do you touch gasoline nozzles for example? Do you touch clothing? Do you touch your hair? All of them are covered in viruses and bacteria. Just about anything you touch is the same way.

Touching your face is actually a healthy thing to do, because touch has healing properties. Kissing increases one's immunity even though our mouths are FULL of germs!

Our skin produces oils including fatty acids. Fatty acids neutralize viruses. Washing those fatty acids off of our hands when our hands aren't dirty or sticky or has crumbs on them ends up washing those fatty acids away.

I do not recall the last time I had the flu. It might have been 40 years ago.

So ask yourself, how many times have you had the flu in the last 40 years? If hand washing helped, shouldn't you have a longer flu free track record than mine?

I hug with the flu as a matter of fact, and I definitely don't scurry to wash my hands afterwards. I should be getting sick every year based on the quaint notion that hand washing is protective.
