What item are peo­ple most likely to leave in their cars overnight?

Women's Health (Malaysia) - - DISCUSS -

AN­SWER: B.

A re­cent Jiffy Lube sur­vey showed that more than half of peo­ple lit­ter their cars with left­over food and drink con­tain­ers, which al­lows ill­ness-caus­ing or­gan­isms (E coli, sal­mo­nella) to thrive, says Kelly Reynolds, PHD, an as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor of en­vi­ron­men­tal health sciences at the Univer­sity of Ari­zona in Tuc­son. And A and C are right be­hind—one-fifth and one-tenth of peo­ple, re­spec­tively, leave these overnight. Mois­ture from the re­sult­ing bod­ily flu­ids can in­crease hu­mid­ity in the car, ex­tend­ing the sur­vival of E coli and other bac­te­ria by weeks. Clean out your car nightly, and dis­in­fect it with an­tibac­te­rial wipes weekly.
