Will you wash your hand before breakfast/lunch/dinner?I believe it's the good habit of most of us.In fact,I don't do that everytime before having meals coz the lack of washroom,or just simply my lazy`.I think it's a necessary thing before having meal,even sometime we can use folks,or chopsticks like me`~So,do you think it's a good habit for us?If yes,will you wash your hands before meals?Thanks for sharing with us~~

of course i do wash my hands before meal, in fact handwashing is the single best way to prevent the spread of bacteria as what my mom said ..."you wash your hand dear before you eat"when i was young...until now i do all that and this habit is part of my life.....beacuse bacteria are everywhere they are on our bodies,too. we spread bacteria by constantly touching our hair,noseand face. and therefore, when we eat we should wash our hands before we enjoy our meals

All i wanna say is your not going to die of a cancerous disease just because u dont wash your hands before meals i think people do it because they want to be clean but who knows if the germs are there or not even after u wash your hands and who knows how many gers are there in ur folk and spoon when your having ur food. Germs are everywehre u cant avoid them theyr even in your skin and theyr more friendly than harmful.

sweet!!!haha ...i always think like that too...so ,if i remenber i'll do it. although keep the habit is good , if you forget do it,it's not a serious problem. don't care so much about it...but,it not means you can have meals with your dirty hands with mud ,soil and so on... (children should do it ,because their immue aren't strong enough to fight with the germs)

Hey both`~I think it's ideal for us to keep this habit even germs is everywhere just mentioned~coz unless you don't clean your band before meal,your possibility of being infected by germs is increased sharply I think`~even our immunity is strong~anyway,thanks for sharing`

Hi there tonny. I must admit that in 95% of the cases i do wash my hands as i care about my health. The only exceptions are when eating out as i do not always have a sink at my disposal.

yes I wash my hands before and after meals even if I use spoons and forks because sometimes I can't avoid picking food with my hands LOL But sometimes I don't wash hands when in restaurants especially if you have to line up.

Sometimes I do if I think my hands are real dirty, but for the most part I dont do this. I think that it is a good habit to have though, but I am just lazy.

of course i will! it is too dangerous for a person to eat without washing his/her hands who use public transportation four times a day! last week i had really bad stomach ache and the doctor i went to see said that it is probably caused by public toilets or unwashed vegetables.. oops, i think i departed from your subject!

public toilet is a source of being infected.One more source is....which may be hidden behind our care..the keyborad,according to the research,the bacteria in the keyboard may be several times of the toilet seat of public toilet~`lol~~how about your stomach ache?Have you recovery from it?Just take care my friend~`

In my cafeteria they have a hand sanitizer dispenser right next to where the silverware is. This makes it extremely easy to wash my hands before every meal. I admit that at home and in high school I rarely would go out of the way to wash my hands before each meal. Although this is a good habit, I have heard from many different sources that children who did not was their hands or children who picked their noses when they were little turned out to have a stronger immune system than those kids who were clean. It makes sence, and is an interesting fact to note.

When I am at home I always wash my hands before setting down at the table to eat. This is something that I have done at home my whole life. My mother would tell me now to go and wash your hands or are you going to eat.

Normally I wash my hands before meals. Except that sometimes i was lazy or can't find the washroom, I would use wet tissues instead. Washing hands before meals is a good habit as we all know. we should keep it and don't be lazy, it's good for our health.

absolutely I wash my hands before preparing food or if I have not prepared it then before I eat it. I am very concerned about food poisoning especially when preparing foods so that I want to keep everything clean.
