Is Your Cell Phone Making You Sick?

Contact with dirty surfaces is inevitable, but touching germ-ridden objects can be dangerous to your health if you are not washing your hands throughout the day. As this video explains, cell phones can be some of the worst objects to make contact with if you are not strict about washing your hands thoroughly after handling food, dirty diapers, using the restroom, or picking up animal waste. If you do not get your hands clean after these activities and you reach for your cell phone, you could be leaving behind traces of E. coli, which can make you very ill.
