This article in Haaretz just annoyed me.
There has been a 4000% increase in sales on hand sanitisers. Almost every shop I have been into has these hand sanitisers for sale at the till, at about 10 NIS a 100 ml bottle. Parents are being required to equip their children with wet wipes and hand sanitiser? Good grief, the insanity is mind boggling. Soap and water are just fine.
And the saddest part is that it is antibacterial and swine flu, mexican flu or H1N1 is a virus. Antibacterial gels can’t protet you from a virus. And they are full of nasties.
Read here for some more on why antibacterial soaps and hand sanitisers are not such a hot idea.
Triclosan and triclocarban, and why you don’t want them on your skin.
Eat your fresh fruit and veggies, get out into the sun without sunscreen, get lots of sleep, love and laughter. And eat those fermented foods 🙂
