Handshake-free zone

A commentary in JAMA says it’s time to stop shaking hands, as a good ole fashioned handshake is one of the easiest ways to transmit germs. In light of the superbugs that are taking over the world, this may be the best thing to do – at least with your doctor or health care worker. I can see it now: a stenciled sign with two hands shaking with a red circle with a line through it right next to the one with the cigarette and the big red X. On one hand, an unchallenged immune system is a weak one. On the other hand, a weak immune system probably can’t take a major challenge like MRSA or MERS. So much for the “personal touch” in the patient/doctor relationship… I guess we are down to hand signals. I’ve got one for the AMA and their crones that helped cause this microbe-madness.

Nothing like a sterile handshake...
