Test your hygiene knowledge as Sanisolve cleans up a few myths.
Keeping diarrhoea victims away from food areas stops spread.
Not so, it takes just 10 to 100 organisms of Shigella Sonnei to cause sickness
(Journal of Infectious diseases 1991). Spread by the faecal oral route, toilets
are an important factor (Mon. Bull. Min. Health 1956). Besides, which CPS
Norman at the Public Health Laboratory has found that the shigella organism
is excreted on average for 17-29 days and sometimes for 18 weeks after infection
is reported. The American Journal of Epidemiology 1986 similarly reports
that salads can and are infected with Small Round Structured Viruses a day
after recovery from gastroenteritis. The Public Health Laboratory point out
that vomit is a big factor often leading to rapid spread.
Washing Hands stops infection and food poisoning.
Besides the obvious act of opening taps with unclean and closing them with
clean hands, there are other hazards. Listeria pneumophilia is thought to
be helped to grow in the sediment on taps and in sinks by a water bacterium,
Flavobacterium breve feeding it L-Cysteine (Wadowsky and Yee 1983).
Water deposits and growths on taps, sinks and toilets are a nuisance, not
a health hazard.
Unsurprisingly, they stop effective cleaning, actually protecting microorganisms
from cleaning fluids, sometimes they react with bactericides making them
less effective. (The Washington Food Processors Institute 1990).
More worryingly, sediments seem to concentrate human enteroviruses. GD Lewis
found that downstream from a sewage outfall, concentrations of enterovirus
were found to be 10 times higher in sediment than in the water.
An antibiotic resistant E. Coli strain has been shown to transfer antibiotic
immunity to another E. Coli, as sediment let them exist in close proximity
(Stewart and Koditscheck 1980). Similarly Multiple drug resistance is thought
to have developed in E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, through close breeding
in sediment. (Vasconcelos and Anthony 1985).
Aching limbs, headache, sniffling, fever and nausea indicate flu.
Or so many sufferers and employers of mild hepatitis (B Positive report)
and Norwalk virus (Public Health Laboratory) believe.
Simple day to day cleaning is good enough for toilets.
Besides just looking, seeing if water forms large beads on surfaces is a
test of cleanness (Walker and LaGrange, Iowa State University).
Everyday cleaning does not remove water deposits and leaves cleaner residues
which react and interfere with bactericides (The Washington Food Processors
Besides which, most cleaners use chlorine which some bacteria spores are
resistant to and do not have access to steam heat which kills effectively
in cracks and other places where chemicals do not reach. (WG Jennings, Theory
and practice of hard surface cleaning)
Dysentery is not a problem in the UK.
The Public Health Laboratory Services Communicable Diseases Surveillance
Centre reports that 90% of reports are about Shigella Sonnei.
Between 1980 and 1992 reports to PHLS of Shigella grew 650%.
Because the PHLS guidelines recommend exclusion of food handlers, healthcare
workers and children with diarrhoea, the consequences can be far reaching.
Dr. JM Dunlop, the Hull District Medical Officer dealt with a case which
started with four Shigella Sonnei infected children. This became an epidemic
as it spread to 860 known cases, involved 70 schools, several of which had
to be temporarily closed. At great expense, 21,000 stools were checked from
6,643 people who had to be traced. This took up the time of Eleven health
officers and twelve nurses.
People who are tired and don't perform for months are either depressed, demotivated
and lazy, or have yuppy flu.
Hepatitis can have just this effect without other obvious symptoms. Those
affected can feel generally run down for more than six months (Public Health
Flushing empties the toilet.
Try a simple experiment. Get some ink or other dye, pour a little in the
toilet and flush.
You will find that some dye remains.
Water deposits in the bowl make this problem worse.
Hepatitis is rare and only spread through sex or needles.
There are five main types of hepatitis; A,B,C,D and E. A and E are mainly
spread through the faecal oral route. B,C and D mainly by blood and other
bodily fluids including urine.
Surgeons have spread Hepatitis B to patients (British Medical Journal 1985)
and outbreaks of Hepatitis A can be caused by contaminated food (Public Health
As women menstruate and many people suffer anal bleeding (e.g. from Haemorrhoids)
and there is often splashback, with the toilet bowl usually never fully cleared,
there is some risk of infection.
Far from being rare, 5% of the world's population have antibodies to Hepatitis
B (Aids Newsletter 1990), 1 in 200 in the UK to hepatitis C (National Blood
Transfusion Service donor's test), and 50% of Europeans have antibodies to
Hepatitis A (Olaf Thraenhart, World Health Organisation.
Hepatitis B is 100-200 times more infectious than the AIDS virus and people
who clean toilets used by those affected can be infected via any cuts (B
People do not have to show symptoms to be infectious, and hepatitis can be
caught from week old dried blood (B Positive report).
Interestingly, HIV is found in blood, urine and semen (Olaf Thraenhart WHO)
and 13% of blood donors, found to be HIV positive, claimed that their only
possible exposure was through sex with low risk heterosexual partners (Public
Cooking food makes it safe.
Not so. Hepatitis A can stand both heating and freezing and outbreaks have
even been caused by frozen raspberries (Public Health Laboratory).
Adding to the risks, heated food when tested 24 hours after refrigeration
can still be at 10°C inside (Smith, Georgia Morbidity and mortality
weekly report 1985). This provides an ideal environment the slightest contamination
This ignores the risk from contamination to cold foods.
The threat from exotic viruses and organisms is remote.
As travel becomes more adventurous, the risks of catching exotics grows.
Even now, 50% of travellers get diarrhoea (World Health Organisation, food
safety committee 1984). Arguably, courtesy of homecomers and visitors, viruses
and microorganisms are transported more surely than luggage.
Nothing can be done.
Sanisolve maintenance can help. Viruses and microorganisms are killed during
the special cleaning. At the same time, the conditions which encourage hazards
Having clean conditions also encourages better hygiene.
It is worth noting that there are also financial benefits to having Sanisolve
We believe that by using our service, you will find there is less unexplained
illness, under-performing and flu-like sicknesses.
We feel that food poisoning will be greatly reduced, which retains customers
and that, in some cases, expensive fines, closure and legal actions can be
