Don’t Use Bathroom Hand Dryers If You’re Afraid Of Catching The Flu, Here’s Why

You don’t need me to tell you how bad this year’s flu season has been in the U.S. It seems like everybody is getting sick, and you’re probably right.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this flu season is just as bad as it was in 2009 when we had swine flu, and it may only get worse!

Unfortunately, it’s not your “average” flu, this year’s flu strain is much more aggressive on the body, causing more death and hospital visits.

It seems like the simple solution to prevent yourself from getting sick is to wash your hands. That’s crucial, but we never hear about how to properly dry our hands.

Apparently there’s a right way to get rid of those germs, and, contrary to popular belief, an automatic hand dryer is the worst way to go.
