The Importance of Handwashing …


Hand washing is the single most important act you can do to prevent getting sick and making others sick.  The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 5,000 people die each year from food borne illnesses.  78 million become ill, and between 79,000 and 96,000 die from hospital infections each year.
