Getting Rid Of Germs

There are times when we come down with a stomach flu or food poisoning caused by salmonella. Infections by the listeria and even E.coli bacteria are not uncommon either and when that happens, we often wonder how on earth we could have wound up with something like that.

These bacteria spread rather easily and you may not know it, but they are often distributed by and through food and could already be thriving in your kitchen and the vegetable bins in your refrigerator in particular.

My guess would have been that the kitchen sink and the sponge would be the items with the most germs. They are on the list, but the fridge's vegetable drawers have them beat by a mile. It is very likely we drop our fruit and veggies in them after we come home from the grocery store and don't think anything about it.

Well, we should and there are some measures we can take to prevent cross-contamination and getting sick. The best action to undertake is washing out the drawers regularly with hot water and soap. Rinsing them well with a mixture of baking soda will take care of the smell.

That also goes for your blender and your can opener; if you don't wash them well after use, they provide excellent breeding grounds for bacteria. In case we don't have the time to clean the bins, then giving the vegetables and fruits an extra good washing would do the trick.

Even though we can't see them, germs are ever present. We better eliminate them as much as we can before it is too late. Many have already fallen ill and even died from the mentioned infections while the possibility exists that it could have been prevented.

Even though we can't see Him, God is ever present. If you haven't done so already, embrace Him before it is too late. The reality is that many have already found guidance, leadership, and everlasting life in His arms and all it takes is faith!

Romans 1:17
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
