Don’t Touch That Dial!

Don’t wanna catch the flu? Glove up. It seems every single thing we touch – from our keyboards to our friend’s Blackberry to bicep curl machine at the gym is literally teeming with bacteria and viruses. Remember, scrupulously washing your hands is one of the best ways to protect yourself. And according to this abcnews story, you’ll also want to avoid touching ATMs, elevator buttons, grocery carts, yoga mats and mush more:

Five of the germiest surfaces you probably touch every day:
1. Purses and wallets – What, you thought the floor of your favorite bar was a clean place to stash your Kate Spade? Think again. Plus, paper currency is full bacteria, viruses, even trace amounts of illegal drugs!
2. Remote Control – Chances are, the person staying in your hotel room before you did not wash his or her hands after using the toilet
3. Water fountain - Studies have shown that water fountain spigots typically have twice the amount of bacteria as a toilet seat, mostly because sick, dehydrated people tend to be thirsty.
4. Buttons – How many people have keyed in their ATM codes, dialed on that public phone, purchased something from the vending machine or pushed the first floor elevator button before you did?
5. Grocery carts – A child in a diaper likely sat in the same spot where you just tossed your apples and chicken breast. Need we say more?
And, of course, keep your fridge stocked with probiotic-rich kefir!
