We’ve probably all done it at least once–we’re in a rush, and leave the restroom without washing our hands. Or perhaps we’re just being lazy, and don’t feel like spending the full 90 seconds we should be spending when we wash our hands. Whatever the case may be, washing hands is a vital practice, and most people underestimate just how important it is to spend the time doing it. While you may not think it’s that big a deal, washing your hands is not optional–it’s necessary. Read on to find out why.
Prevents Bacteria Growth
After you use the restroom (whether you touched your body or not) you probably have some sort of fecal matter on your hands. Bacteria is stubborn. It doesn’t just fall off your hands after a few shakes. And if the person before you didn’t wash their hands, the door knob on the restroom stall is probably at risk for containing fecal matter. This matter–which contains one trillion germs in a single gram–can spread diseases such as E. Coli or salmonella. No one wants that!
Protects Vulnerable Children
Children don’t have the immune systems we do, contrary to the popular belief held by those who just think kids should be naturally covered in filth. In reality, washing your hands with soap could prevent 1 in 3 cases of childhood diarrhea. Not many parents practice good hand washing techniques, and so they don’t have the ability to pass that knowledge to their children. Teaching children at a young age the proper way to wash their hands can promote their health.
Stops Antibiotic Resistance
You’ve probably heard about how bacteria is slowly growing resistant to antibiotics. This includes hand sanitizer, soaps, and even the antibiotics you get from your doctor. Since hand washing can reduce cases of intestinal issues and respiratory issues, which are the main health problems that antibiotics are prescribed for, it can prevent bacteria’s ability to adapt.
