Hypochondriacs Strike Back 

A new study from Children's Hospital Boston has found that regular home use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers reduces reported GI and respiratory infections in kids. Part of me says 'no duh, you got the parents to be cleaner than they were before,' but then it's also encouraging to learn that these things are in fact effective. Some hospitals already have dispensers on their walls, and encouraging more to do so could reduce hospital infections and cross-contaminations, which would be great.
