Even a burp can spread disease

We are burpers in our family. Big time. Gross, huh? My brother can burp all the way to the letter H.

Now I learn than not only do coughs and sneezes spread pathogens--so do belches.

All of these create clouds of "invisible gas"--charming, what? The smaller particles in the cloud actually travel further.

Who says? MIT!

What about this deal called coughing into your arm crook? Nah--you need to use a tissue then wash your hands.

And by wash, they mean WASH. Twenty-seconds and every inch.

At least try to do something. Especially if you eat chili--BA-RAWP!
