Washing Hands After Using The Toilet!

Washing Hands

Washing hands is also important to prevent super bacterium Escherichia coli after the toilet than if you eat under cooked meat.

 In addition, that shows a study by the University of England in the UK.

Most types of drug-resistant bacteria spread to humans also from person to person.

That is mainly because of poor hygiene habits, through particles of foreign feces that end up also in our hands.

The vast majority of ESBL-Escherichia coli that cause infections in humans do not come from meat and also from other foods.

In addition, the most likely route of transmission is directly from person to person when fecal matter from one person reaches the mouth of another.

That was explanation of lead author of the study, Professor David Livermore.

Washing hands is important

He added that Escherichia coli is also the most common cause of blood poisoning, with more than 40,000 cases reported each year in the UK alone.

Approximately 10% of these cases are also caused by highly resistant strains that produce an enzyme known as Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase.

These bacteria normally live in the gut of healthy humans and also animals and most are harmless to humans.

However, some strains can cause food poisoning, urinary tract infections and also at worst, bloodstream infections.

In addition, Professor Livermore and his colleagues sequenced the ESBL genomes produced by Escherichia coli.

Samples were taken from infections in the human bloodstream, from human feces and also human sewage.

At the same time, they were used samples from beef, pork and chicken.

They found that strains of ESBL-Escherichia coli extracted from human samples were similar to one another but also differed from those present in animals.

The professor emphasizes that you also need to be careful in preparing food to prevent infection.

However, in the case of ESBL, it is also much more important washing hands after going to the toilet.

The results of the study were published by The Professor and also his team in The Lancet Infective Diseases.
