College Students Lax About Washing Their Hands
From Oct. 29:
College students may not be washing their hands properly, according to researchers who found that more than half of the students tested had large amounts of different types of bacteria on their hands. The bacteria were linked to increased risks for infections, doctors’ visits, and absences from class or work. Infectious diseases can be spread in many ways, but proper handwashing with soap and clean, running water is one of the most important steps that can be taken to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
