Dirty Money

October 2, 2017

If you are a fan of crime movies you understand that the term dirty money refers to illicitly gained money that needs to be laundered. Well here is a different take on this subject. I am referring to all paper money that you handle. Paper money harbors many types of bacteria. This can be a health problem that can lead to serious infections. Remember your mother's advice to wash your hands frequently. It is true in many ways.


The lead researcher in this study that analyzed the paper money advised people to routinely wash or disinfect their hands after handling paper money. Personally I think this is good advice on a subject that I had never considered  and I intend to follow it.

Mom's advice was right on the money.
