So I have been trying to note themes that keep popping up in random places, and I really like the concept of avoiding disease rather than getting it, and then having to fix and treat it.
So I was thinking the other day, Is washing your hand after going to the bathroom really necessary? In my brain, unless you are poking your fingers in your feces, most of the time you only touch the toilet paper, handles and out the door you go. So what is the point of washing EVERY time. Is it really because we obtain so many nasty bacteria from our feces that ends up floating around in the air and magically lands on our fingers and if we don't wash our hands we will come down with infection?
- BTW I want to add, that I know we have all left the bathroom without washing our hands and have probably remained quite happy and well.
So how do we keep track or remember to wash our hands every other hour or so???? Just make a habit of washing after you use the bathroom!!! SO SIMPLE RIGHT. Not only are you making sure you eliminate any of the POOP that you get while prodding it, BUT you also are participating in THE MEDICAL FIELDS GREATEST DEFENSE VS. INFECTIOUS DISEASE. I bet you had not idea that you really were super smart!! So don't skip the hand washing after the bathroom and if you haven't washed your hands in two hours, take your lazy bum to the sink and rest assured that your effort is WELL worth the EFFORT!!!
