Has a cold or the flu ever ruined your plans like a trip or special event? A company is selling tissues which have already been sneezed on with the idea being you can "get sick “on your own terms” and avoid an unexpected illness, but should someone ever consider using this product?
The Doctors discuss how the company Vaev is selling tissues with a human sneeze in each of them for $79.99 per box and The Doctors are extremely wary of this product and approach to dealing with an illness. They express serious concern about the germs and types of illnesses that may potentially be on the tissues and share how a variety of serious infections like tuberculosis could be present.
ER physician expert Dr. Travis Stork notes a major flaw in this approach to dealing with a cold, explaining there are many different viruses that cause the common cold and even getting a cold intentionally now, doesn’t mean someone won’t catch another one later.
Instead of intentionally trying to catch a cold, The Doctors suggest people take steps to prevent getting one. The CDC recommends these steps in order to protect yourself and others:
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Avoid people who are sick
- Remain at home while you are sick and keep kids out of school or daycare while they are sick
- Limit close contact with others, such as hugging, kissing, or shaking hands
- If you cough or sneeze us a tissue and dispose of it, or cough and sneeze into your upper shirt sleeve, completely covering your mouth and nose
- Always wash your hands after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose
- Disinfect surfaces and objects that are frequently touched, like doorknobs and toys
The Doctors also suggest eating a healthy and well-balanced diet, excising and getting plenty of sleep.
