The Food Standards Agency in Scotland has developed a handwashing film, which demonstrates an effective way to wash hands and eliminate potentially harmful bacteria. At any one time, there can be millions of germs on your hands, although these are far too small to be seen by the naked eye. Some of these are harmful to health and when spread to food can cause food poisoning.
They can, however, be eliminated with an effective hand washing technique. This film demonstrating this technique can be accessed via the link on the right.
