Doctors, surgeons fail to wash their hands, risking health of patients

A new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine shows that doctors, surgeons and anesthesiologists fail to wash their hands with alarming frequency. According to the study, doctors in emergency rooms only washed their hands 50 percent of the time, and surgeons were even worse, failing to wash 64 percent of the time.

The study points out that this widespread hand washing failure represents a very real risk to patients. From my point of view, it's simply astounding that this simple, zero-cost procedure remains largely ignored by the professionals responsible for the medical health of our nation. Thanks to their failure to simply wash their hands, doctors and surgeons are actually giving patients infections, some of which undoubtedly result in patient deaths.

I've always said that a hospital is one of the most dangerous places you can be. They lack natural sunlight, they're full of toxic chemicals and prescription drugs (many of which are given to patients in error, or with the incorrect dose), and they harbor infectious diseases that are spread by doctors, surgeons and health care workers who universally refuse to wash their hands frequently enough. The studies are now proving these observations to be correct.

Stay away from hospitals, folks. Stay away from western doctors. Avoid all prescription drugs, and never submit to surgery unless you've had some sort of accident or acute injury. Take care of your health so you don't ever have a reason to visit the hospital in the first place: avoid all processed foods, junk foods and soft drinks. Supplement your diet with superfoods, vitamins and minerals like coral calcium. Get a daily dose of natural sunlight. Engage in regular physical exercise. Stop watching television. Don't take antidepressants, statin drugs or other prescription drugs that cause mental imbalances. Avoid fast food restaurants. Don't drink cow's milk or eat red meat. The list goes on, but you get the picture: you can take control of your health right now and keep yourself out of harm's way. But it's your choice. And if you choose to destroy your health, you'll inevitably end up in the (dirty) hands of some doctor or surgeon.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
