Are germs of immortality—
The buds of mightiest destinies!

A thousand germs are groping through the gloom,
And soon will burst their tomb.

These studies cited by Dr Gerba of the University of Arizona, whose colleagues call "Dr. Germ ," had me thinking twice about filling up.
You already know your bathroom at work is loaded with germs .
You may think the bathroom at work is the place with the most germs , but experts say the office break room is the top germ "hot spot," according to a new study.

There's no way to avoid germs altogether during the winter germ season, but you can take action by recognizing some of the most common areas where germs tend to congregate.
While you likely know these basics, you might not be aware some of the most common places germs tend to congregate and spread.
Nationwide, the places with the most germs are also often unexpected places, a new study by the Kimberly Clark Healthy Workplace Project showed.
