Very amusing it makes a change from the dour faced doctors I've seen lately.

Funny. I can do without the antibacterial soap and antibiotics though.

Wash those hands, though not with antibacterial soap. Try Dr Bonner's soap, none of us is about to perform surgery.

The antibacterial components of soaps (usually triclosan or, less commonly, triclocarbon) need to be left on a surface for about two minutes in order to work. Most people are not this patient, and end up washing off the soap before the antibacterial ingredients can do their job.

Some scientists theorize that bacteria may develop a resistance to bactericidal agents over time.

Some bacteria actually benefit us. The normal population of bacteria on our bodies not only eats our sweat, but also helps defend us against truly harmful, invasive bacteria.

Many common diseases are viral in nature, anyway, and are therefore not prevented by antibacterial products.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), antibacterial soaps are not necessary, but washing your hands thoroughly with ordinary soap and warm water is one of the most effective ways to ward off infection.

Public health is an international issue where innovative public education approaches can come from anywhere and be useful everywhere and that does not make it PR for any government entity ever.

Cute, but I didn't like the recommendation to use antibacterial soap. Far better to scrub up with normal soap. There is a chemical called Trichlosan in many hand washes which is very bad news.

I really enjoyed watching the Jewish people having fun with their own special dancing.

But, then, I just love the Jewish people. lol
