Wash Your Hands!

This topic remains high on the food safety radar and won’t ever go away…hand washing and cross-contamination are paramount.  It’s a simple task that supports the preventative approach and it’s still the main reason we get sick, and make others sick to this day.

The founder of hand cleaning was committed to a mental institution…it’s such a sad end to the story of such a revolutionary visionary.  I shared a previous post about the essential role of hand washing, entitled Invisible Cadaver Parts and NPR just shared some more details about the discovery of hand washing and sanitizing.  It’s worth a few minutes of your time…please listen and wash your hands often.

DrDIY is a food-safety professional with an extensive sanitation background within the food & beverage manufacturing industry. He consults on food-safety - from hygienic-design to integrated pest-management through microbiology support, quality improvement audits, total-process management philosophy, CIP optimization, and lean-six-sigma project participation.

Overcoming an extended disability through a complete overhaul of diet and nutrition, DrDIY embraced traditional naturopathy and combined the wisdom of nature with the principles of modern sanitation to help build more sustainable systems within the food industry. He continues to study and practice holistic nutrition, food-safety, detoxification, and self-improvement and this site represents personal experience and opinion - and does not reflect the position of any employer past or present.

His posts have always been a 'stream of consciousness' montage with occasional ventures into Christology and pop culture, just to keep things interesting.
