Wellness Tip
Don't forget to...
ALWAYS carefully rinse off the tops of canned sodas or foods to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on. Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, your country or another and some have rodents and may carry the Hanta virus and other bacterias. Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans. Whenever you buy any canned soft drink, please make sure that you wash the top with running hot water and soap or, if that is not available, drink with a straw.
