The main thing is to WASH your HANDS after handling wire solder, PCBs
and especially solder paste before you eat. Don't eat in the same
place as you do soldering. Try not to breath the fumes from soldering,
a small fan helps (though it's probably mostly the flux).
Additional precautions should be observed by women who might be pregnant.
