Go stand at the restroom at your local grocery, then follow (secretly) the ppl you see NOT wash their hands go to the produce section, next stand at
the produce section and watch as ppl (people) cough, sneeze, pick their noses and touch every single piece of fruit and vegetable before they choose
Then think of the workers that set up those attractive clean looking stacks of produce and count how many times they touch their faces, hair, and body
as they place the produce in the racks.
And again while you watch this contemplate how many ppl worked in the food distribution warehouses, sick and sneezing, coughing as they loaded and
handled the product as it goes to the trucks, where there again several ppl come in contact with the produce.
Finally, ponder how the produce came to the food distribution warehouses, did it come from Mexico or other areas that use ppl from Mexico or other
places to work the fields? Did they have time to go 1/4 mile to the outhouse? Or did they simply pull em down, pee or worse and go on?
Are those workers in a position to call in sick? Or did they show up sick and when they needed to cough or sneeze take time to do it in a cloth and
toss it , wash their hands and or wear a mask to keep from contaminating the produce?
Now this is simply the produce section...
Each time you grab a can or bottle, do you consider the same? when you buy a cold drink do you think of the hands that one bottle or can encounters
before you take it, open and refresh yourself?
Be careful. Think, and know that awareness comes with great personal responsibility.
Especially for those with babies, think about this next time you open a can of formula or a jar of baby food, squeeze out the lotion from the clean
looking baby lotion and powder. Just because it is new and looks clean does not mean that it is.
