    Encore Episode: Germs Are Our Friends
    Widespread fear of getting the coronavirus has made self-serve salad bars and all-you-can-eat buffets a thing of the past!  In fact, the country’s leading buffet restaurant chain, Golden Corral is changing its format and removing its self-serve buffets. Many Las Vegas casinos have seen their final buffet days and so have cruise-lines.  All this comes from a fear of touching utensils that others have touched. Considering people touch their cell phones (contaminated with 17,000 germs, including E. coli) and doorknobs, menus, elevator buttons, and armrests that thousands of people have touched, where do we draw the line?

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, a key member of the government’s coronavirus task force, recently announced that he recommends people should never shake hands again! Even when the pandemic is over, he says we should permanently cease handshaking and giving our friends a high five.  

    If we allow ourselves to become germaphobes, this will lower our immune system and increase our risk of getting sick.  Germs are our friends. We need them. In this eye-opening episode, Dr. Friedman shares why in this episode from July 2020.
