1000 Flowers for the Planet # 495 Observe World Health Day
Today is World Health Day and the theme for this year is ‘food safety’. To prevent food borne disease you need to remember 5 things: 1) Keep clean by washing hands before handling food. 2) Keep raw food and cooked food separate. 3) Cook food thoroughly. 4) Keep food at safe temperatures i.e. hot for cooked food and cold for stored foods. 5) Use safe water and safe raw foods.
When all of us, worldwide, use best practices when handling food, we prevent the spread of disease throughout the community, and being the global village that we are, we need to prevent diseases travelling from one country to another as well. The World Health Organisation has a lot of information for you at http://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2015/en/ . Check it out, observe the special day for World Health and play your part.
