The mission of every Infectious Awareables tie is to generate interest, discussion, even excitement about serious public health issues. Believing that humor can be a powerful educational tool, Infectious Awareables neckties take an atypical, slightly irreverent approach to some very serious subjects. Shop and take pride in knowing that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to disease research, education or support associated with important non-profit public health agencies and organizations.
BIOHAZARDS are organisms or organic substances that threaten human or animal health, including medical waste as well as microbial toxins capable of causing both disease and mortality. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) categorizes various diseases in levels of biohazard, Level 1 (e.g. E. coli) being minimum risk, Level 4 (Ebola) being extreme risk.
