Lather Up! From Terrific Science Press supports CDC message on hand washing and swine flu

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) emphasizes that washing your hands frequently helps stop the spread of germs, including the virus that causes swine flu. As every preschooler is taught, a quick rinse without soap does not equal a proper hand washing. Middle and high school students probably need a refresher on hand washing techniques, and can also benefit from understanding more about germs, the history of hand hygiene, and the role of hand sanitizers and antibacterial soaps in controlling the spread of disease.
