Another great reason to wash your hands

Along with the seasonal influenza, many have experienced what they called the "stomach flu."  Not a flu bug at all, the most common organism causing several days of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea is the norovirus, which is currently spreading throughout the area.  Our local CBS affiliate had me on for an interview on Monday, January 28, with comments about the disease:
Bottom line lesson:  whether for influenza, norovirus, or any of a number of other diseases, wash your hands with soap and water.  Sing "Happy Birthday To You" slowly while washing, to give adequate time for cleaning.
