We want to get acquainted with the diseases and illnesses that may be transmitted to people in case of handshake. Join us.
Punching each other transmits 90% less loss of virus and bacteria. Shaking hands is one of the most ancient mirrors in Western culture, dating back 2,000 years. But health experts say that shaking hands can transmit many diseases and it is better to avoid it.
The tradition of shaking hands is more than 2,000 years old. This custom also existed in ancient Greece, the Greeks at that time thought that the outbreak of a disease was due to an imbalance of fluids in the human body and a kind of punishment from God. But it did not occur to them that shaking hands could transmit the disease.
Shaking hands is also a kind of show of peace. In the old days, shaking hands with strangers meant that no one was carrying a gun. Scientifically, shaking hands in the human brain triggers the release of chemicals, such as the hormone oxytocin, which is the bonding hormone, leading to harmony and friendship.
In Western societies, a strong handshake indicates determination. In Eastern countries, however, soft handshakes are preferred, and efforts are made to somehow prevent the display of power. But what is clear is that by shaking hands, a person leaves a stronger image of himself on the other side.
But shaking hands can spread different viruses and bacteria. For example, if someone touches his nose and then touches it with another hand and another rubs that hand on his eye, for example, he can easily get sick.
One way to prevent the disease is to wash your hands regularly with warm water and soap. But most people do not. Research shows that two-thirds of men do not wash their hands after going to the bathroom.
According to a new study, it is recommended that handshakes in health centers, for example in hospitals, be completely banned. Today, people are becoming more and more aware that shaking hands can transmit the disease.
Another new study shows that punching each other transmits 90% less loss, viruses and bacteria. Short punching each other may be a new kind of “hello”.
