Wash your hands to avoid getting sick.
With flu season coming up, there's this scary new story out there that women have more bacteria on their hands than men! This study doesn't really say why (though maybe all that cleaning, cooking and dealing with kids might have something to do with it), and it does say that hand washing doesn't kill ALL the bacteria, but it certainly kills some of it! So remember to wash your hands often! And remember to keep your hands away from your face—that's an easy way to transmit a cold.
