Sherwin-Williams Says New Paint Will Kill Bacteria

from CNN Money

Not only are such infections a major cause of hospital deaths, but they are also extremely costly. Based on CDC data from 2009, healthcare-associated infections cost U.S. hospitals between $28 billion and $45 billion a year in direct medical costs. "Paint Shield" claims to kill over 99.9 percent of these bacteria after they've been on a painted surface for two hours. It also reduces the growth of "common microbes." more
