Hand hygiene is one of the simplest, most basic practices that prevents the spread of infection. But we can’t forget what is left behind in the sinks in which hand washing is done.

Biofilms form in the pipes and can be aerosolized from drips and running water, putting the dangerous makeup of those biofilms in a position to be spread.

Food can very much act like a drug, having a powerful impact on the reward centers of the brain. As one of the great joys in life, good food can help keep you happy, healthy and fit.

Being vigilant about ingredients and working to establish good eating habits can go a long way toward better health.
