Parts-of-Your-Body-You-Should-Not-Touch-With-Your-hands

Certain body parts are irresistibly attracted by our hands! But this gesture that seems trivial can be harmful to your health because of germs and bacteria that could spread, generating infections ... Focus on these 7 parts of the body to avoid touching them!
Some body parts are real homes for bacteria!
New scientific research shows that hands contain thousands of germs and microbes that can spread throughout your body when you put your fingers in different locations. According to a study from the University of Nebraska, the spread is faster if your nails exceed two millimeters (because they contain more germs and dirt).
In general, you should avoid scratching body parts, even when they are itching because germs can get in contact with the bloodstream and developing diseases ... Researchers have identified certain areas of the body you should avoid touching not to spread germs and bacteria.
1. The interior of the nails
This body is a veritable breeding ground for bacteria! Among these bacteria, we can find the famous staphylococcus (the cause of skin infections and other more serious diseases) and thousands of other germs that proliferate, waiting for the perfect time to spread over other areas of the body in order to do serious damage ... to avoid this situation, try to keep the nails short and clean them with a soft bristle nail brush to minimize the possible risk of dirt and bacteria.
An infection can even cause a nail detachment (fungal infection, fungal infection).
2. The face
Once the adolescence period is over, acne pimples characteristics of this period gradually fade ... But if you tend to touch your face with your fingers, the pimples will take longer to disappear! Indeed, fingers contain fatty substances that will clog the pores and prevent the skin to oxygenate properly. Also, if after touching objects (dirty) you tend to put your hands to face or to touch, these germs can make their way through the mouth, nose, eyes and cause disease, infection ...
3. The nose
This bad habit of sticking his finger in the nose can have serious health consequences! According to a scientific study, people who have this annoying habit were 51% more likely to develop Staphylococcus aureus, causing poisoning.
4. The anus
If itching, you should know that this part of the anatomy is a breeding ground for bacteria and microbes that can be very harmful to health.
But if you can not prevent you from "scratch" that part, wash your hands thoroughly immediately after so as to prevent the spread of bacteria to other parts of the body.
5. The mouth
Since childhood, we particularly like taking in any object in the mouth (without food). According to British researchers, it seems that we are on the fingers and around the mouth about 23.6 times per hour! This "natural" gesture can be harmful. According to another study, one third of germs and bacteria present on the fingers will end up in your mouth, which is a royal road to get inside your body and develop all kinds of diseases ...
6. Eyes
It is not advisable to touch your eyes with your fingers, especially if your hands are not washed beforehand. Indeed, unlike other parts of the body, the eyes are more susceptible to germs and less protected because fingers can be a vector of diseases due to bacteria and germs they carry.
Therefore, avoid as much as possible that your hands come in contact with your eyes, and scratch if your fingers are dirty as this can cause conjunctivitis. For the hygiene of your eyes, using the drops and eye drops are the best way to clean in case of dirt.
7. ears
You also need to remove your fingers from that part of your anatomy because it contains germs and earwax ... But also because the internal auditory canal is lined by a thin membrane that can be easily damaged by contact with an object. In case of injury or tearing of that membrane, the microbes will access the body via the bloodstream and cause infection.
It is difficult to avoid touching certain body parts, an automatism that we have from birth ... You just remember that billions of bacteria just waiting to make their way to get into your body! Did you know that an American study has identified nearly 1,400 categories of bacteria in a navel? A figure that could scare ... Therefore, the best protection for you is to wash your hands as often as possible, either before you touch parts or after coming into contact with them, to limit infections.
