Ignaz Semmelweis

I found the article, "Ignaz Semmelweis and the conquest of Puerperal Sepsis," quite interesting. It amazes me how something so simple, such as washing your hands, can cause such a dramastic life threatening health problem. Things have progressed in so many ways in the past 100 years, and I can't imagine the bacteria and viruses that would be going around if hand washing had not originated and was practiced today. -Haley
