    Using the bathroom hand dryer just flings poo particles all over you, study finds

    The next time you’re done washing your hands in a public restroom, maybe make your next stop the paper towel dispenser.
    That’s what a group of scientists at the University of Connecticut would advise, anyway.
    They found out by asking themselves, “How clean are the restrooms where I work?” So they placed bacteria-collecting plates in 36 restrooms throughout the university’s academic health center.
    The results have been published in the latest issue of Applied and Environmental Microbiology.

    As it turns out, the hand dryers in public restrooms are blowing more than hot air. Sure, they’re great at saving paper, but they’re also flinging nasty little poo particles all over the place, including onto the hands and faces of those who use them.

    The study was conducted using hot air dryers that do not have high-efficiency particulate air filters. According to CNET, hand dryers made by Dyson come equipped with HEPA filters, and could be the exception to the rule of the UConn study’s findings.
    One of the bacteria strains flying through the air was identified as none other than Bacillus subtilis, which is found in the gastrointestinal tracts of humans and other mammals.
    And just to add another layer of horror to the mix, if you were to get sick from ingesting a few too many of the poo particles, the B. subtilis researchers found on their plates is resistant to the antibiotic kanamycin.

    Yeah those things are nasty. I hate when they do not have paper towels to dry hands off and use to open the door knob with.

    I have to say, if those blowers are blasting poop particles on you then that means they are already constantly floating all around you and being drawn in with every breath, too.

    I went to basic training in the Indian Territory . The wind blew all the time . Every meal I ate that did not come in a can was from a field mess tent ( with no seats ) and when you got someplace outside to sit and eat the food was already covered in a nice layer of blowing dirt .
    Do something Danke

    You are supposed to wash the pooh off your hands BEFORE you use the drier.
