Does education promote health? A case study of foodborne disease on Guam
In 1975, Guam stopped testing food workers for foodborne disease. Instead, it taught them how to avoid spreading disease to restaurant patrons. But this new policy did not much cut the rate of foodborne disease among patrons, suggests a statistical study. A major typhoon may have cut the disease rate more, perhaps by closing restaurants.
