Fist Bumps May Be Replacing Handshakes.

 

STEVE FROST/THINKSTOCK

The fist bump may be the new greeting for 2014. According to a new study  from The Journal of Infection Control a short fist bump is a much more healthier greeting than a traditonal handshake.

A fist bump is a better alternative than a germy handshake and even a hard high-five. The study showed that handshakes transmit about 10 times more bacteria than fist bumps and about two times more bacteria than high-fives.  As for handshakes, the briefer they are the less bacteria are likely to be transferred to you.

Will you start to use a fist bump as a greeting especaily during cold and flu season?
