My children’s pediatrician says that he never gets sick just by never touching his face. I think that’s one of the hardest habits to break; we constantly touch our faces without even thinking about it.
Fungal disease threatens Swedish wheat harvest
The wheat harvest in many parts of Sweden is under threat by the fungus disease Tilletia contraversa (dwarf bunt).
The Board of Agriculture (Jordbruksverket) has found several of the disease in Södermanland and now fears a wider distribution in central Sweden.
“For growers, this is a big setback, because the harvest may be unmarketable,” said Alf Djurberg, agronomist at the Board of Agriculture, to Sveriges Radio news programme Ekot.
Dwarf bunt is not in itself dangerous, but the spores from the fungus smell awful and render the wheat useless as food.....
When a pandemic flu is around you should never touch your face. I tried doing this one day and found that I touched my face anyways about once every 5 minutes, even while conciously trying not to. (dangling participle?)
Its just impossible. Try it.
