TouchSurfaces.Org Launches Public Health Information Site for Advanced Disinfectant Solutions for Use Around Children and Pets
Date:12/10/2009

NORTH CANTON, Ohio, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- TouchSurfaces.Org launches a public health information website alerting visitors on how the hard surfaces in the home, the work place, and in public venues can act as host to a multitude of infectious viruses and bacteria including H1N1, MRSA, HIV, and others. The new site also provides information about advanced disinfectants most effective for eradicating these unwanted germs.

Germ-contaminated surfaces can be found anywhere and everywhere - in healthcare facilities, homes, daycare centers, offices, airports, stores, athletic complexes, and wherever people gather or pass through. They run the gamut from light switches, faucets, hand rails, door knobs, table tops, counters, elevator buttons, vending machine buttons, ATM machines, bathrooms, and computer keyboards, etcetera.

Research shows that consumers are increasingly searching for harmless products that kill germs; bacteria, fungus and viruses, that may also be used around their children, aging parents, pets and employees.

"Touch surfaces are dangerous and can make you sick. Just touch a germ-contaminated surface, then touch your eyes, nose or mouth and an unpleasant cold, flu or infection can develop within a few days," says physician and popular television medical correspondent Dr. Bob Arnot, who serves as chief medical educator for www.touchsurfaces.org.

"Scientists have recently developed a new biotechnology called SpectraSan 24(TM) that is an advanced broad spectrum disinfectant with 24-hour residual protection capabilities that kills 'super bugs' like MRSA and VRE as well as flu viruses, including the pandemic 2009 H1N1 strain. This is a key factor in staying healthy as the H1N1 virus lives longer on hard surfaces than seasonal flu, which survives just a few hours. Research studies indicate the H1N1 virus can live up to twenty-two hours on hard surfaces and remain contagious for up to eight hours," says Dr. Arnot.

Dr. Arnot says the website TouchSurfaces.Org will provide the public with a medical practitioner's advice on how to prevent the spread of disease-causing pathogens from touch surfaces which pose a silent - yet imminent - threat.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the American Society for Microbiology, cite growing evidence that contaminated surfaces play a key role in the spread of flu viruses.
