Here are the Six Most Germ-Covered Surfaces We Touch Every Day:

I'd go ahead and buy stock in Purell right now . . . because when you hear this you're gonna want to run out and buy a year's supply of hand sanitizer.

--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.
