AN EL­E­VA­TOR BUT­TON

Best Health - - WELLNESS NEWS -

A study found that 61 per­cent of el­e­va­tor but­tons had mi­cro­bi­o­log­i­cal growth, while just 43 per­cent of toi­let sur­faces were breed­ing germs. Staph and strep are among the bac­te­ria strains that could be con­tracted at the touch of a but­ton. To avoid the spread, use a pen or your el­bow to press your but­ton, and ap­ply hand san­i­tizer once you get to your floor.
