Dr. Urban handed me an article that he clipped from the Northern VA Dental Society Newsletter. I sort of wish he hadn’t. This is disgusting, but I suppose we should all be aware that, “One in four people have fecal matter on their hands”. This is according to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
According to this article, “Brittan’s 12 million cases of norovirus, gastroenteritis, MRSA, E-Coli and Swine Flu infection have been mainly traced to dirty hands”.

I’m going to go wash my hands now.
