Millions of Germs and Bacteria Await Kids at School : Food Poison ...

* A cafeteria tray had more than ten times as many germs as a toilet seat (33,800 bacterial cells per square inch vs. 3,200 bacterial cells per square inch).
Call it germophobia news created by pandemic media outbreaks. But thanks to all that pandemic panic a simple solution to cleaning a tray, is to grab one of those ubiquitous ever present disinfectant wipes and give the tray a good wiping. And then do it again with a second cloth.

Mind you this is scary....

"We saw as many bacteria on some food trays as we saw on a toilet," said Hancock.

Swabs were taken from a gas station toilet for comparison and lab technicians did find similar types and amounts of pathogens.

Yep gas station bathrooms are notorious for being dirty.....say no more.....good thing they have those disinfectant dispensers in them too now...whenever we read or hear stories like this....disinfectant manufacturers are laughing all the way to the bank......
