One day, the handshake is going to disappear entirely and we're all going to fist bump when we meet someone or close a business deal. And we are all going to be SO COOL.
A new study in the "American Journal of Infection Control" found that a fist bump is WAY more hygienic than a handshake . . . a fist bump passes about 95% fewer germs than a handshake.
If you don't want to fist bump, you should at least HIGH FIVE instead of shaking hands. A high five passes about 50% fewer germs than a handshake. (The Wire)
