More than Norton or McAfee Needed to Stop These Viruses

Germs in the Marketplace, a study conducted by the Clorox Company in Tuscon and Washington, DC found that accounting offices were second only to teachers in level of bacteria contaminations. By contrast, law offices only had about one-seventh of the germ level as accounting offices (this should provide plenty of good material for both accountant and attorney jokes). Dr. Charles Gerba of the University of Arizona recommended regular hand-washing (do accounting offices need the "wash your hands" signs used by restaurants?) and daily use of disinfectant wipes on commonly-used surfaces.

The study probably is most valuable as a post-Thanksgiving reminder to be careful during the flu season to practice good hygiene.
