International Hygiene Study shows American disease prevention mixed

Posted On Wed, October 19, 2011

A recent study by Lysol found that some Americans are good at keeping tabs on staying healthy, while others still need some work.

More than half of consumers around the world said they kept good habits when it came to hygiene. Homemakers had the highest hygiene levels in the United States, with 64.5 percent regularly keeping clean, while students were found to have the worst, with only 44.5 percent. Those who consider themselves conscientious contracted colds 10 percent less than those not in this category.

"Adopting good hygiene habits is a responsibility we all share," said Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician and author. "It is important for families to integrate regular hygiene practices at home, school and work throughout the year to keep germs from spreading, especially during cold and flu season."

Consumers may not only want to take measures to minimize their susceptibility to contract diseases, but also may want to insure that if they do get sick, they are properly covered. Those who ensure they find the best health insurance quotes are more likely to save when trying to stay healthy.
