Dr Oz: Hand Dryers Vs Paper Towels
When they debuted in bathrooms around the world, we were promised that Hand Dryers would be more efficient, less wasteful, and cleaner than paper towels. But Dr Oz asked public health expert Peter DeLucia to find out whether the popular theory is true that hand dryers are healthier than paper towels.
Peter shared one study that pointed the finger at Hand Dryers for spreading germs, pushing bacteria all over public restrooms. That is in part due to our failure to properly wash our hands. Apparently, only 5% of people are washing their hands as long as they need to, and only 33% of people use soap to wash their hands.
