New Airplane Research Leaves Stomachs Curling

I don’t know about you, but every time I fly, I end up sick. And I’m not talking about motion sickness. I’m talking about a cold, the flu, etc.

Well, there’s a really good reason so many people get sick when they fly and it has nothing to do with the person sitting next to you who blew their nose for four hours straight.

New research has discovered that deadly germs (like MRSA!) can live in airplane cabins in the upholstery, tray tables, buttons and more for up to a week.

So even though airlines claim that they clean the inside of a plane after passengers have left (and most really do), it might not be a bad idea to pocket some sanitizer and wet wipes with you to clean off anything you plan to touch.
