8 Germiest Public Places

I love these articles. Just one you think you got it all covered, there are more. This is a link with 7 clicks. If you don't like that, skip it. We survived all these years, but, I do believe germs and viruses have gotten stronger.

Re: 8 Germiest Public Places

interesting... the first one never even crossed my mind before.
-------------------
although something thing i somewhat peculiar:

#3 "Holding the bottle with a napkin won't help; napkins are porous, so microorganisms can pass right through"

#4 "Palm a spare paper towel after you wash up and use it to grasp the handle"

a napkin is pourous but apparently a paper towel is not?
-------------------

"The handles of almost two-thirds of the shopping carts tested in a 2007 study at the University of Arizona were contaminated with fecal bacteria. In fact, the bacterial counts of the carts exceeded those of the average public restroom."

a rare moment but i am speechless!

Re: 8 Germiest Public Places

^^ i thought everyone knew that these days.. about the shopping carts. thats why many stores, especially walmarts carry sterilizing napkins next to the carts.

I thought I was safe with a paper towel opening a restroom door on the way out, too! I guess everyone will just drop dead one day! That would be cool if it was Earthwide, but, who would know?

Re: 8 Germiest Public Places

I'm sorry, but a porn shop's 'video arcade' would literally be crawling with AIDS, to say the least of what else could be there
