Health special: Why washing your hands regularly is a must

Washing hands on a daily basis cuts the number of child deaths from diseases like diarrhea, which is the second leading cause of child deaths by almost half and from pneumonia, the leading cause by one-quarter.

There are five critical times in washing hands with soap and/or using of a hand antiseptic related to fecal-oral transmission:
>>after using a bathroom (private or public)
>>after changing a baby's diaper
>>before feeding a child
>>before eating and before preparing food
>>handling raw meat, fish, or poultry, or any other situation leading to potential contamination


Representational picture

To reduce the spread of germs, it is also better to wash the hands and/or use a hand antiseptic before and after tending to a sick person.

For control of staphylococcal infections in hospitals, it has been found that the greatest benefit from hand-cleansing came from the first 20% of washing, and that very little additional benefit was gained when hand cleansing frequency was increased beyond 35%.

Washing with plain soap results in more than triple the rate of bacterial infectious disease transmitted to food as compared to washing with antibacterial soap.

Comparing hand-rubbing with alcohol-based solution with handwashing with antibacterial soap for a median time of 30 seconds each showed that the alcohol hand-rubbing reduced bacterial contamination 26% more than the antibacterial soap.

But soap and water is more effective than alcohol-based hand rubs for reducing H1N1 influenza A virus and Clostridium difficile spores from hands.
