8 Germiest Public Places | Lifescript.com
I love how the author is a germophobe, using alarmist language throughout the piece:

she missed the most obvious, hospitals.
I would've guessed Germany.
Very few germs are pathogens. I remember reading that 50% of out body weight is made up of symbiotic bacteria. In other words, we need germs in order to survive.
Best thing to do with germs is to keep clean. Pathogens are more likely to be in certain places.
Actually, hospitals are some of the cleanest places. They use special ventilation in their air systems to filter germs in the area, and then of course all the surfaces are cleaned multiple times per day.

You must hate undereducated elderly ladies, to do something like that to her.
In Cuba, perhaps...but not in modern American hospitals.
My mother worked with a woman who unintentionally ingested that hand sanitizer stuff. It totally screwed with her ability to properly digest food for MONTHS!!! I'm a teacher, so I swear by hand sanitizer, but I also think that a few germs here and there are probably much better for us (in terms of building up immunities instead of building super-bugs that are resistant to all our defenses) than sanitizing everything we look at.
I agree, I think I've built up such a good immune system as a teacher, I hardly ever get sick, yet I'm around snotty nosed kids all day.
