The simplest, most effective food safety technique is washing our hands. Keeping our hands clean is a crucial line of defence against harmful bacteria and getting in the habit of washing them regularly will pay off for a lifetime. Why is this?

We touch dozens of materials and surfaces around the house1 all of which will contain bacteria of one kind or another. Most of these bacteria are harmless - but some of them, if they come into contact with our food, can lead to a nasty case of food poisoning or even serious illness.
