How dirty is the money?

Someone must have told you [money is so dirty! ] (Not that kind of mental dirt)

Yes, money is like this. What people like it, what people touch it and never wash it (those who enter the washing machine by mistake do not count).

But… it seems that I don’t think I will get sick if I touch the money. Part of this is true.

Money is really dirty, but you may not be ill.

Someone once ran to the supermarket cashier and bank and randomly selected banknotes and coins for bacteria culture. The results showed that:

In addition to Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus these common bacteria, there are mold, yeast and other fungi, sometimes can also find Pseudomonas aeruginosa. You know, but all medical personnel who have seen the fascinating smell of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection focus will not be willing to recall this picture.

Generally speaking, coins are cleaner than banknotes, and large denomination banknotes are cleaner than small denomination banknotes.

When we say [money is dirty], we often mention two situations: one is to eat after touching the money, and the other is (some people can’t change it) to count the money after dipping their fingers in saliva.

In fact, people who eat what without washing their hands after touching money like this are a little disgusting and usually do no harm to the person himself.

Few adults with normal immunity will have diarrhea due to touching money.

As long as the number of germs is not too large, most of them will be corroded and eliminated by gastric acid, or even if they reach the digestive tract, the number is not enough to cause diarrhea.

Is that money contagious?

Don’t laugh!

In the 1990s, there was a widespread urban legend: a female bank employee did not wash her hands and went to the toilet after counting money. As a result, she got a severe sexually transmitted disease, condyloma acuminatum.

Condyloma acuminatum is generally manifested as the strange [meat cauliflower] growing on the genitals. Even if you go to the hospital to burn off the laser, you will grow out again. Do you feel afraid when you think about it?

This is also the reason why rumors spread: people are inexplicably afraid and make irrational behaviors that they would rather believe without verification.

But the reason why it is [sexually transmitted disease] is that it is mainly transmitted through sexual behavior.

Although in addition to sexual behavior, it may also be transmitted through mother and infant, close contact, sharing of goods and other channels, but close contact and sharing of goods also require a crevasse in your skin before the cauliflower can be planted on you, otherwise the probability of contracting the disease is very small.

Moreover, in general, condyloma acuminatum does not run everywhere, but grows around the genitals. Only when the patient’s sexual behavior has patterns can he have corresponding [fancy symptoms]. For example, it grows in the oral cavity (you know) and the anus (you also know)…

If it is spread by means of some money, is it using what to make some money? !

Money, dirty is a little dirty, also don’t have to be so hard with money.

But! The important thing is always but.

Don’t let your money dirty, son

If it is a person suffering from digestive tract infectious diseases such as hepatitis a, it may harm the next person who touches this banknote through the way of [saliva-coin-hand].

Children’s skin immune function is relatively poor, so they should be careful of specific disease germs.

For example, [impetigo] is a disease that is often transmitted among children. Blister fluid contains a large amount of Staphylococcus aureus.

If the child feels that the pustule is broken, a little itchy, scratches a handful, and then takes out 5 dollars to buy a bag of snacks to eat with the canteen boss, then the number of germs on the banknote is very large.

The boss may not be infected, but the children of the boss’s family who help collect the money may be infected with impetigo.

People with poor digestive tract immunity, such as infants, are also vulnerable.

The gastric acid of infants is not as good as that of adults, and its killing effect on pathogenic microorganisms is relatively limited, making it easier for diseases to enter from the mouth.

Many people see other people carrying their children out of their homes during the New Year. They pull out a few crumpled bank notes and stuff them in the past. Then they pinch the baby’s little face and hands. When the baby eats his fingers, it is easy to bring these pathogenic microorganisms into his stomach and cause diseases.

Therefore, we must keep up with the pace of the new era:

Say hello to each other, WeChat sends red envelopes to express love paperless.

What if I really can’t help but want to get started?

Wash your hands! Wash your hands! Wash your hands!

Units such as banks that have more contact with banknotes will arrange their employees to wash their hands before leaving work after completing their work.

Although venereal diseases are generally not transmitted by hand, it is very necessary to pay attention to hygiene and wash hands frequently, which even children know.

Don’t underestimate the cleaning ability of flowing clean water, most germs can be washed away by flowing water.

If cleaned with common soap and hand sanitizer, it also has certain inhibitory effect on common pathogenic bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Candida albicans, etc.

See here, did you throw down the money in your hand and want to wash your hands?

Wait, where did you throw it? Tell me first.
