Harmful Habits that Seem Harmless

  1. Not washing your hands after using the bathroom.
    • Hand washing is one of the easiest ways to prevent the spread of colds, flu and other infectious diseases.
  2. Using a handheld cellular phone while driving.
    • Drivers who use one hand to talk on the phone and one hand to drive significantly increase their chance of being involved in a crash.
  3. Not flossing regularly.
    • Brushing alone does not kill all the germs in your mouth. Up to 30% of germs are not killed by brushing. If you floss regularly, you rid your mouth of those hard to reach germs and decrease your chance of developing gum disease.
  4. Not performing a monthly self-breast exam.
    • Monthly breast exams are an important tool to help detect breast cancer early. Early detection will increase your survival rate.
  5. Not drinking enough water.
    • Water is crucial to survival. Make sure you get enough!
  6. Dieting.
    • Diets promote unhealthy eating habits, often by eliminating nutritious foods. Dieters are encouraged to ignore internal body signals of hunger and fullness.
  7. Not paying attention to Consumer Recalls.
    • If you kept a product that was recalled, using the product can cause death or serious injuries. Sometimes, these products are sold/bought at garage and yard sells.
    • Consumers can visit the CPSC Web site for a list of current recalls, product notices and other product safety information and they can sign up for recall notices, notifications about hazardous toys and other e-mailed information.
