Did you know that everything around you is covered in yucky germs? Yep, we all know that, but it’s again verified to scare everyone. As I discuss in this week’s podcast, a fun new study in the US swabbed a lot of public places and found germs everywhere — especially on gasoline pumps, public mailbox handles, escalator rails and ATM buttons. What’s the lesson? I’m not too sure, as it’s fairly obvious stuff. Perhaps we should all never go outside again? Oh yeah, our own bathrooms and kitchen tops are also awash in germs. Hmmm. Where to hide…
But it does allow us to talk a bit about viruses and colds, and talk about how this type of contact is the major way that many viruses spread, including the annual flu virus. Check out the podcast for more tips.
