Quotes

"Prevention is a big thing. Like good hand washing and covering your mouth when you sneeze" says Dr. Smith
Lance Jones, Chief Engineer of the Arkansas Department of Health Engineering Section, said last year, "A high level of radium in a particular well in one quarter does not mean a high level in another quarter, and a high level in one well does not mean a high level in another well during the same quarter."
"These cultures are coming in allall the time,” Clardy said. “The health department is getting those. They're getting monitored, and so, at some point one of those is going to test positive for this virus.”"
"Washington Regional Medical Center in 2010 had over 900 emergency admissions from poor dental care," he said. "When you start putting dollar signs next to these admission, people really pay attention."
