It sounds so simple: wash your hands! But again and again, health care studies show that the number one best way to fight infection and protect yourself and your family from infection is as simple as hand-washing. Research shows we can potentially prevent 1 in 3 diarrheal illnesses and 1 in 5 respiratory illnesses just by keeping our hands clean. It’s never to soon to teach your children good hygiene habits, such as washing their hands as soon as they return from school. Remind them to wash their hands during the day at school before every meal or snack as well.
