For many years and into today I have constantly told folks that every time one goes shopping as soon as you are back home, the first thing you should do is wash your hands with a good hand soap, I use good old Tide can’t be beat. I never use antibacterial soap as that just makes things worse. On route from shopping one should at the very least keep ones hands away from ones face. Shopping carts are gaining the reputation as one of the dirtiest and most germ-contaminated public items. The cart seats and handles have considerable more bacteria that even toilet seats and flush handles. Shoppers are blissfully unaware that bacteria and viruses, such as E. coli, staphylococcus, salmonella, and influenza, can live on grocery carts and their handles for three days. A study found at least 21 percent of the shopping cart seats tested contained bodily fluids, such as blood, mucus, saliva, fecal matter, and urine. Bacteria from these body fluids can be threatening, especially to those with frail immune systems and children. So if you want to help yourself and family stay healthy wash your hands like your mother and father keeps tellin’ ya. Well most mothers and fathers I should say as the world is changing from when I was young. My opinion only.
