Transmitting infectious germs

Isn't this obvious? I mean, did we really need this study? Researchers in Israel have found that the uniforms worn by doctors and nurses harbor infectious germs 63% of the time! Moreover, those uniforms washed every two days have more bacteria and germs than those washed daily. The authors pointed out, too, that bacteria can be transmitted to patients by other means, such as not washing hand frequently enough.

You know...they make toys with anti-bacterial toys...why can't that be done with the Doctor's white jackets???

And yet our medical field is truly one of the best. Odd that.
