World Health Day: The One Easy Thing You Should Do April 07 2016
Eating a piece of fruit a day, cutting down on sugar and doing plenty of exercise will all help improve your health; however one much more important and easier action you can take is to wash your hands regularly and remind others to do likewise.
We are constantly touching things handled by others: computer keyboards, door handles, coffee cups and of course shaking hands. Hence it is an easy way for viruses to be passed on to others with a massive 80% of infectious diseases spread through touch.
It is therefore a surprise that half of men and a quarter of women do not wash their hands after going to the toilet. Unsurprisingly, our 'Wash Your Hands' signs are extremely popular. It seems we all need a reminder to be hygienic not only for our own good but also for others. Stupidly, we all think that we are germ-free and cannot pass anything on that will help others. We've signs in many different designs and colours with ones suitable for children too.
