Why should you always wash your hands before handling food?

Many food-bourne illnesses start with unwashed hands preparing

the food. You can cause serious illness and even death through the

contamination of food with fecal matter left on your hands after

using the bathroom. Always wash thoroughly with hot water and soap

before preparing any food.
