Short n’ sweet this week…as I can’t believe it’s that time of the week again! #TOTW is:
‘Want to reduce the risk of disease? Abandon shaking hands, and start bumping fists’

Another related tweet later in the week:
‘Should we abandon handshakes in favour of fist bumps? No way’ via

Does what it says on the tin. Fist bumps mean less germs are passed on when greeting someone. Whether you think this is a step to far in hand hygiene or not is entirely up to you! I use both handshakes and fist bumps. I just thought this was an interesting piece of research worth sharing!
It doesn’t always have to be serious! :-p
