The ‘Silly Season’ Is Here: Watch What You Eat, Where You Go, etc.

Dr. Ad Versery:  Ok, Summer is officially here, and with it comes the ‘silly season.’  So my colleagues and I have rather urgent advice.  First, read my blogs about recent pandemics spreading across China, Europe and the Middle East to stay informed about spreading communicable diseases.

Ad Versery:  Remember last summer?  O.K. so don’t go around kissing pigs, hugging chickens, eating raw fish, or standing close to people who cough.  Health officials admit they don’t know how the newest communicable diseases––H7N9 Bird Flu and Coronavirus––are spread.

They may come from animals, but medical workers don’t know if these viruses spread through the air, from person to person, or even in hospitals.  But they do know that new types of flu have grown resistant to anti-flu medications.

Butterman:  Remember news reports last year about poisonous cantaloupes, phoney fish, or salmonella chickens ?  Investigate news about germ-infested meats, fruits and vegetables––including from news outlets in your area.  And read our ‘earthend’ blogs often. While major media sometimes downplays food scares to protect advertisers, our blogs, and other internet sources, try to keep you informed.

Ad Versery:  Wash your hands often, especially after using bathrooms.  And try to stay out of hospitals.  Anemona wash-your-hands-regularlyHartocollis wrote ‘With Money at Risk, Hospitals Push Staff to Wash Hands,’ in The New York Times this week:

“Studies have shown that without encouragement, hospital workers wash their hands as little as 30 percent of the time that they interact with patients. . . . All this effort is to coax workers into using more soap and water, or alcohol-based sanitizers . . . One puzzle is why health care workers are so bad at it.”  Apparently doctors resist hand washing instructions more than other hospital workers.

At insistence from the federal government, hospitals now use various methods to insure hand-washing, including:  motion sensors, video snooping, radio-frequency ID chips, electronic badges to track hand-washing––and rewards.

Rev. Repriestly:  Enough of this!  Hospital workers represent the healing power of God, as set forth in His Word.  They should not have to be forced to be clean.  This necessity was discovered hundreds of years ago in medical science.

Food is God’s ‘staff of life.’  And some grocery store owners willingly disobey Him by selling bad foods?  They gamble with their eternal futures:  As used Christian books attest, food is God’s ministry to man:  “Now He that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness (2 Corinthians 9: 10).”
