You do this to protect from bacteria, but it’s completely USELESS!
In order to protect yourself and your dearest from bacteria, many of us do these things.
Bacteria all around us, but also in us!
In the last few years, the fear of bacteria grows more and more, especially of superbugs, because they are resistant to all antibiotics we know. In order to protect yourself and your dearest from bacteria, many of us do these things. But, it’s TOTALLY USELESS.
You hold the breath when somebody sneezes
This won’t protect you if somebody near you sneezes (except if you are not able to hold the breath for 10 minutes). During the sneezing the bacteria are being thrown even 5 feet, and the bacteria drops could stay in the air.
You flow water from your toilet tank with a leg
There are situations like this. Some people use a leg, some of them uses toilet paper etc. But, everything doesn’t have sense and it’s completely useless if you touch the doorknob with your hand when you leave the toilet. The doorknobs are the biggest source of bacteria, so after leaving the toilet, your hands are full with bacteria again.
Using gloves on the ATM
You have gloves on your hands when you tap the buttons on the ATM, the same buttons that are tipped by hundreds and hundreds of people? A useless way to protect yourself from bacteria, because those bacteria will pass from the gloves on the hands again, or on other items you touch.
