Everyday you’re confronted with germs, bacteria, and viruses that have the potential to make you very ill. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to stay away from all these germs, but it is possible to kill a significant amount of these germs and prevent the spread of unwanted bacteria.
Every year in the United States food borne illnesses cause 76 million illnesses, 325,00 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths. However, not only food borne illness will cause you to become sick. There are germs crawling all over your everyday used items.
Before you even leave your house to start your day, you’re confronted with nasty germs that are just begging to get you sick. Take for instance, that sponge that sits on your sink to “clean” your dishes. A milliliter of foul water that is squeezed out of your kitchen sponge contains up to 10 million bacteria. Not just that, the seals on your refrigerator were tested positive for common molds around 83% of the time. Before you leave the house, don’t forget your cell phone. And did we mention, 16% of cell phones have feces on them?
