E. coli 0157 is a dangerous strain of the E. coli bacterium. It is usually found in our stomachs. To prevent the contamination of food and surfaces in the house with this bacteria, make sure your hands are clean during food preparation and handling, keep the bathroom clean especially if there is a member of the family suffering from diarrhea.
MRSA or Meticillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus is a strain of Staphylococcus aureus bacterium which is resistant to existing antibiotics. Once infected, it is very difficult to treat. Soap and hot water are the most effective preventive measure for infection.
Nerovirus or winter vomiting germs is a common cause of gastroenteritis. Wash with soap and hot water after food preparation, before eating and after using the bathroom.
Molds are fungi that thrive on moisture, oxygen and organic material. Exposure to mold spores can cause nasal and sinus congestion. These also trigger asthma and lung infection for those with chronic respiratory diseases. Airing and exposure to sunlight prevents growth of molds and disinfecting the house on a regular basis.
