New research finds men are dirtier than women, but not by much.
Health officials say that washing your hands is the best thing you can do to avoid getting sick.
When it comes to putting that into practice, studies have found that a lot of us say we do a good job, but researchers found most of us don’t do anywhere near as good a job as we should.
Carl Borchgrevink is an associate professor in the School of Hospitality Business at Michigan State University.
“We found that people do not wash their hands as much as they should… or to be blunt… there’s a lot of dirty hands out there,” he says.
