A recent study from Lysol found that more than half of consumers noted they take part in good hygienic practices, which is vital as cold and flu season is approaching quickly.
Those who are typically nervous receive colds 10 percent less often than other people, while consumers who cover their mouth when they sneeze are sizeably more likely to have a more impressive health record.
The Center for Disease Control noted that more than 20 million school days are lost annually by students who get sick from the common cold. In addition, anywhere between 5 percent and 20 percent of the population are likely to get influenza at some point this year.
"Adopting good hygiene habits is a responsibility we all share," said Dr. Laura Jana, pediatrician and author. "It is important for families to integrate regular hygiene practices at home, school and work throughout the year to keep germs from spreading, especially during cold and flu season."
For those who don't have insurance coverage and are fearful of catching an inconvenient sickness, it may be a smart idea to look for competitive health insurance rates.
