Do What You Can To Prevent Unnecessary Infection

Next » « Previous


Infections lower your disease fighting immune system’s ability to fight disease.

A few techniques have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of infection. For instance:

  • Keep your hands away from your face - particularly around your mouth, nose and eyes.
  • Wash your hands regularly. When you wash your hands, use soap and water for the amount of time it takes you to sing Happy Birthday.
  • Wash your hands before leaving the gym and after being in other highly trafficked areas.
  • Eat a healthy diet - such as the cancer prevention diet described in the document in “To Learn More.”
  • Store, cook and handle food safely.

For more information, see the documents in "To Learn More."
