Why Airplane Pockets is a Solution for Passengers and Airlines
Do you know the daunting numbers of flights per day and what statistics are associated to germs and bacterias on planes?
When researchers from the University of Arizona swabbed them during a 2007 study, four out of six tray tables tested positive for MRSA and noroviruses -- a bevy of nasty, germs that can cause vomiting and diarrhea. What's worse, many flight attendants say they only wash tray tables about once per day. Make sure there's a barrier between your food and the tray table, and wash your hands before eating, says Dr. Phyllis Kozarsky, a travel medicine expert with the Centers for Disease Control. "The important thing is to protect yourself as much as possible," she told The Huffington Post.
