#1. PREVENT COLDS AND FLU
Does simple and cheap
hand washing really do any good?

It turns out that your mom was right. Hand washing is a low cost and simple way to prevent a myriad of contagious illnesses. Wash your hands four or more times a day with plenty of soap and warm water for about 20 seconds and then dry. Take a look at what health experts have to say:

The Navy Wire Service - B Wire (NWSB) reported on July 21 1997: "Washing your hands keeps you healthy. Children who washed their hands four or more times during the school day had 24 percent fewer sick days because of colds and flu, and 50 percent fewer sick days because of stomach troubles."

In another study the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego found that new recruits at the Naval Training Center at Great Lakes, IL, who washed their hands at least five times a day had 45 percent fewer illnesses such as a cold, flu or pneumonia than those who didn't wash their hands as much.

#2. MORE ABOUT FLU AND HAND WASHING

But the news is not all good. A study for the American Society for Microbiology discovered that only 67 percent of people washed their hands after using the toilet. In some places like New York City it was as low as 50%.

If you think that colds and flu are not that serious, you might want to consider this: According to the National Center of Health Statistics, 65 million colds send people to the doctor or knock them out of work or school each year. In addition, 44 million school and workdays are missed annually because of colds and flu, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

In addition about 100,000 people a year are hospitalized due to flu and 20,000 people a year die from flu. Most of those people are over 65 years old.

If soap, water and a clean towel is not available, you might consider carrying packets of antiseptic towelettes which can effectively clean your hands without soap and water. You should be able to buy these at your local drug store or pharmacy.


#3. MORE FLU PREVENTION TIPS
From The CDC or The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Ga.

== Avoid close contact.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

== Stay home when you are sick.
If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.

== Cover your mouth and nose.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

== Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
