Flu season parlor game

I'm not neurotic, just curious. I know Mom warned you about public toilets, but can you and your friends name the top 10 germy surfaces we encounter regularly? Take your time, I can wait...

...OK, ready? In the interest of public health -- not fear mongering! -- here's the list that ABC News published last year. I have to admit there were a couple of surprises for me!

What's the remedy? You know: wash your hands. And keep your fingers off your face, while you're at it! Clean the surfaces you can; be cautious of those you cannot. And educate yourself and your pals. If you're science geeky at all you will enjoy this cool animation about a viral attack. (Thanks, NPR!)
