8 PLACES THAT ARE COVERED WITH GERMS

The Flu Season is here, and although there is no guarantee you won't catch it, there are some things you can do to limit your chances of catching it. According to health experts, here are some common surfaces where bacteria are most likely to lurk. Restaurant Menus Have you ever seen anyone wash off a menu? Lemon Wedges According to a study in the Journal of Environmental Health, nearly 70% of the lemon wedges perched on the rims of restaurant glasses contain disease-causing microbes. Condiment Dispensers It's the rare eatery that regularly bleaches it's condiment containers. And the reality is that many people don't wash their hands before eating. Restroom Door Handles Don't think you can escape the restroom without touching the door handle. Soap Dispensers Most of these containers are never cleaned, so bacteria grow as the soap scum builds up. And the bottoms are touched by dirty hands, so there's a continous culture feeding millions of bacteria. Grocery Carts The handles of almost two-thirds of the shopping carts tested in a study were contaminated with fecal bacteria. In fact the bacterial counts of the carts exceeded those of the average public restroom. Airplane Bathrooms When they tested microbes in the bathrooms of commercial jets, they found surfaces from faucets to doorknobs to be contaminated with E. coli. Doctor's Office A doctor's office is not the place to be if you're trying to avoid germs.
