05/17/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

Did you know that air-dryers at your gym can promote germs?

 According to the Journal of Applied Microbiology, rubbing your  hands together under air-dryers can actually release germs.  Washing your hands with soap and water is still the best way to keep germs at bay, http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/germsandhygiene.html ,, but try wiping your hands on paper disposable towel, or use your gym towel .  I know how does that make sense?  But the study says you will release less germs from your sweaty towel then rubbing them together under air-dryers. 

Who would have thought?

It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks

I find lots of interesting articles and topics in the oddest places.  I spoke with a surgeon about this one and he confirmed that the medical world knows this fact, it's just  business trying to save money by not providing paper towels, or they are trying to 'go green'.  I won't be using the air dryers and I have been telling people wherever I go (also telling them to read it on my blog), especially a the gym!
