But to make it interesting here is the history of the band-aid:
Earle Dickson, an employee of Johnson and Johnson developed the first band-aid in 1920 using the sterile gauze that the company produced and simply placing it in the center of surgical tape. The first "band-aids produced were rather large 2 1/2 in width and 18" in length and handmade. They were later machine made and sized down and Earle Dickson was rewarded with a token vice-presidency and a seat on the Board of Director, when the sales of the Band-Aid exceed $30,000,000.Johnson and Johnson has very clear instructions on their web site about how to use their band-aids which is simply--------Clean, treat and then protect the wound.
Unfortunately, our government leaders has this whole order upside down and the cleaning has never been done so there won't be any treatment of healing and the covering has only allowed the "wound" to become more infected. Fortunate for those making these decisions their "Health Insurance" (us the taxpayers) have not let them down but they should be warned......it may one day require amputation.
