Health Tips - Hygiene Basics

 
Hygiene Basics

In Greek and Roman traditional stories, Hygieia was the goddess of health, cleanliness, and sanitation. Her name is the source of the word hygiene. Hygiene is the art of healthy living.

In modern times, there are viruses that can last in a body forever, contributing to fatigue. There are parasites that can be hard to find with lab tests. These can be spread by contact with body fluids such as saliva, mucous, blood, fecal material, etc.

To Reduce the Spread of Germs and Parasites:

  1. Do not kiss people directly on the lips unless you are married and sharing everything anyway. If you are an actor, both you and your acting partner could rinse your mouths with 3% hydrogen peroxide first to lessen the risk.
  2. If you have contact with any body fluid of others, wash up. Soap and water goes a long way.
  3. If you have a cut, keep it covered until it has healed up.
  4. Do not share drinks, food, or makeup. For help on this, read my tip on eating with others.
  5. Use a toilet seat cover or toilet paper to cover a toilet seat or don’t sit down.
  6. Do not place your pack, purse, or briefcase near a toilet, or on top of a table or food counter. These personal belongings have been researched to be excellent carriers of germs.

Hygiene is probably the chief way that health has improved over the centuries.
