Flu-Fighting Gadgets

thumbWashing your hands after using the restroom is standard protocol, but not everyone does it. And what about washing your hands after each time you touch your cell phone? It’s a little bit overstated, isn’t it?

Actually it isn’t.  According to U.K research, 16% of the cell phones are contaminated with fecal matter in the form of E.coli. Cell phones are warm, which makes them a great breeding ground for bacteria. With the advent of touch-screen phones, the same part of the phone that you touch with your fingertips is pressed right up against your face and mouth, upping your chances of infection.

Our immune system also can be a victim of the bacteria hidden on iPods, keyboards, mouses and TV remotes we are in contact with.

After reading this, maybe you will be happy to know that there are some gadgets and accessories that can kill germs.
