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.
