Sand risk : what to do

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

We all know that summer is way far ahead. After reading an article about sand risk I thought that I am obliged to share what I have just learned. It says that beach sand has five to ten times more bacteria than adjacent water. bacteria from bird droppings and human waste such as E. Coli may survive longer in sand than in water because bacteria adhere to particles.

I myself don't want to spoil the fun on the beach. We like going to the beach especially playing on the sand and make sand castles. So to have a self-defense against the bacteria make sure to wash hands after leaving the beach. Warn children not to put their hands in their mouths when digging in the sand.
