WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Aug. 7 According to the U.S.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the common cold is one ofthe most common causes of absenteeism at work and school, with up to 22million school days lost each year in the U.S. Children are at a much higherrisk for catching an illness because they are more likely to put their handsand other objects in their mouths -- especially those whose days are spent incommunal play.

As children return to school this fall, parents can proactively protectthem from the infestation of cold-and-flu-causing bacteria. Duraban's uniqueantibacterial, antimicrobial formula is the first step in the prevention ofmicrobe invasion. Duraban (licensed by BDA Industries) kills 99.9 percent ofbacteria and goes even further, providing a covalently-bonded barrier thatprotects against viruses and bacteria like MRSA, HIV B, Influenza A,Salmonella, Staph, E-Coli and SARS and more than 40 strains of yeast, algaeand fungi.

"Direct contact is responsible for the spread of many common childhoodillnesses like chickenpox, cold sores, ringworm, impetigo, scabies andpinkeye," remarked Scott Gilman, President of BDA Industries. "Some illnessesare spread by sneezing, coughing, dripping or exhaling; these include the flu,the common cold, meningitis, Rubella, Strep throat, Scarlet Fever, pneumonia,mumps, and whooping cough. Duraban's unique formula protects against thegrowth of all these bacteria and viruses. Parents can worry less about whattheir children are being exposed to."

Duraban offers four unique germ-killing products to combat the spread ofviruses and bacteria:

-- Children can carry the convenient DuraClean On-the-Go pocket-sizedspray-bottle to kill infectious microbes on virtually any surface.

-- Washing apparel, blankets, and other textiles with Duraban LaundryRinse will prohibit the growth of germs and keep items fresher for longer.

-- Wipe down all hard surfaces with Duraban Hard Surface spray to preventthe spread of contaminants on tables, doorknobs, and other surfaces.

-- Use Duraban Fabric Spray on colorfast fabrics that can't go in the wash- items like backpacks, draperies, carpets, and upholstery -- to stop unwantedmicrobes from multiplying on the textile surface.

Duraban's EPA registered formula is based on surface-modifying technologythat forms antimicrobial chemical cross-links with the treated surface,creating a non-leaching and durable sword-like microbial barrier.Microorganisms like bacteria, mold, mildew and viruses are destroyed by simplesurface contact, and the strength and efficacy of the bonds will not diminishover time. Conventional antimicrobials migrate and leach, wearing away overtime and releasing toxic chemicals into the environment; in contrast,Duraban's bonds will not leach or migrate, allowing for enduring, eco-friendlyprotection.
