Here are a couple important numbers to remember the next time you fly, according to a new study from Auburn University:
First, the number 7. That’s how many days the superbug MRSA can survive in an airplane seat pocket. In other words: Think twice about using that pocket to store snacks and drinks.
Also, remember the number 3. That’s how many days bacteria like e.Coli can survive on tray tables.
The lesson? It’s time to start adding some antibacterial wipes to your carry-on bag.
