Sound Advice on Surviving 2017 Scourges, and a Nasty Blast from the Recent Past

Since 2006, I have been writing about the benefits of wearing gloves. Now, there is more justification than ever for my admonitions and recommendations on the topic. Currently plaguing Americans and the rest of the world are norovirus and MRSA; the deadly ebola virus is rampant in Africa, and other antibiotic-resistant diseases are proliferating. Most of these viruses are spread by surface-contact. Wearing gloves while out in public, especially while shopping, and disinfecting them when you get home can save your life. And hospital-acquired diseases are now common, so do your best to avoid hospitals and other heath-clinics.

Since 2006, I have been writing about the benefits of wearing gloves. Now, there is more justification than ever for my admonitions and recommendations on the topic. Currently plaguing Americans and the rest of the world are norovirus and MRSA; the deadly ebola virus is rampant in Africa, and other antibiotic-resistant diseases are proliferating. Most of these viruses are spread by surface-contact. Wearing gloves while out in public, especially while shopping, and disinfecting them when you get home can save your life. And hospital-acquired diseases are now common, so do your best to avoid hospitals and other heath-clinics.

HOSPITAL-ACQUIRED INFECTIONS

Hospital-acquired infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites; they are spread by touching contaminated surfaces, clothing and implements, or skin-contact with infected people. Viruses may be contracted from surgical procedures, catheters, or by inhaling airborne pathogens.

Common hospital infections are MRSA and C Difficile. These micro-organisms may already exist dormant in the patient’s body or be contracted from the air, contaminated surfaces and hospital equipment, healthcare workers or other patients. Hospitals must employ pre-screening for MRSA or C-Difficile prior to surgery.

These infections and viruses are often resistant to antibiotics, and the lack of effective therapies may necessitate amputation of fingers or limbs. If you find yourself having to be in the hospital as a patient or visitor, wear disposable gloves before touching any surface, tool, item of clothing or person.

Relying on antibacterial gels and liquids is no longer adequate for self-protection against dangerous germs. Wearing gloves can not only enhance your elegance, but you will be more confident about your safety and survival.

UPDATE, JUNE 28th, 2014: STOCK UP ON FOOD, GLOVES AND SURGICAL MASKS

(2014) Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, Says:

…they’re just loading up disease-ridden groups of immigrants onto buses and DUMPING them onto the streets of large U.S. cities like Phoenix and Houston.

Keep in mind this is the same government that won’t let your child attend public school if they aren’t vaccinated. But 1,000 people crossing the border every day with AIDS, influenza, swine flu, scabies, lice and bed bugs is perfectly okay. The CDC says nothing, and the feds actually transplant these people into high population-density cities.

That’s why this is a “perfect storm” for a pandemic outbreak:

Protect Yourself from the Elements

with Gloves, Hats and Parasols

Kids are now in school, catching and spreading germs galore. Many working mothers send their offspring to school in contagious conditions, and even bring them to the local shops after school to buy supplies. Maybe their child-care options are limited by economic circumstances (don’t expect, under the current leadership, that this situation is going to get anything but worse…).  It seems that “sick” is the new “healthy”. People of all ages seem to be coughing, sneezing and spewing pathogens in public like a modern-day plague. Protect yourself by having a bottle of chewable Zicam with you, and when you get home, take ginger-root raw, candied or in capsules (we like to mix the chopped, fresh ginger with honey). Taking cayenne pepper capsules helps as well–my husband uses the “Cool Cayenne” ones by Solaray, whereas I just use the spice on my cottage cheese every other day. Wear gloves in public whenever possible (it may seem odd and old-fashioned, but gloves are very elegant and practical). If a checker at the grocery store has obviously been infected (coughing, sniffling and nose-blowing are bad signs), move to another cash-register. Cashiers would do well to wear disposable latex gloves (a Wal-Mart worker told us that her colleague caught Staphylococcus Aureus and died). And if people in a store-aisle are coughing or sneezing near you, hold your breath and vacate the position as quickly as possible. Also, try to disinfect the handlebar on your shopping carts. Many markets have dispensers of disinfecting wipes near the cart-storage area. Using these simple measures has kept me rhinovirus-and-influenza-free for six years (knocking on wood). There was a rare incident of me getting a virus: a schoolteacher at one of our dinner parties sat next to me, generously sharing the deadly cough she had picked up from some student. It was a particularly tenacious, painful ailment that lasted a month. The bitterness lingers on, six years later…. Below, you will find some links that can help you maintain general good health.

Ladies' Lambskin Gloves

Ladies’ Lambskin Gloves

I’ve advocated the wearing of gloves on Elegant Survival since its beginning in 2006 (see “The Merits of Wearing Gloves”, my old article). I’ve worn gloves for decades, whether or not they were in fashion. Now, there are even more reasons to wear them. Traditionally, it did not have to be cold outside, as it was on Inauguration Day outdoors in Washington, D.C., for ladies to wear gloves. Gloves will protect your hands from deadly germs and viruses, protect your jewelry from unwanted attention in-transit, and cushion your hands should you trip and fall on the pavement. For reasonable prices and a very extensive selection of glove styles, try Gloves-Online.com
