--In a new study, researchers found the six most germ-covered surfaces we touch almost every day. And the scary part is . . . most of the time we touch them without even thinking about it, so we probably don't wash our hands afterwards.





--The researchers swabbed surfaces in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, and L.A., looking for high concentrations of bacteria, mold, and dirt . . . which could spread the flu, or worse. Here are the most germ-infested spots . . .





--71% of gas pump handles had high concentrations of germs.



--68% of public mailbox handles.



--43% of escalator rails.



--40% of parking meters and parking kiosks.



--35% of crosswalk buttons.



--And 35% of vending machine buttons.
