"You better wash your hands"

Dr Val Curtis of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (and a Leeds civil engineering graduate) said at a recent meeting in London that, while we all talk about “Water, Sanitation and Hygiene”, we should − from a disease control perspective − be talking about “Hygiene, Sanitation and Water”. So here’s a song which she should like, and it’s a really good one for IYS2008 − it’s by Dr Carl Winter of the Food Science & Technology Department at the University of California Davis, and it’s called You Better Wash Your Hands [click on the white ► on the left of the black strip above the lyrics].
