The Fist Bump Cures A Lot – Halt the Handshake for Health.

The ‘Fist Bump’, or more appropriately a ‘Fist Touch’ is an effective ‘cure’ for many, many illnesses.  There is little doubt that the primary transmission of many infectious diseases is from one person’s ‘mucous membrane’ to their hand, to another object, or directly to the  hand of another person. and then contact with their ‘mucous membrane’.

The external surface of the hand is not the area that usually comes into contact with mucous membranes.  The external fist is also usually drier than the palms – bacteria, viri, etc., like moisture – and is much more likely to contain ‘normal skin flora (bacteria)’ than a transient pathogen.

In this day and age of multiple gene, viral, prion, and bacterial mutation, the handshake needs the fate befallen many of its followers… death.  Make no mistake, in a serious epidemic, the hand shakers and the fist bumpers camps will be clearly seen.

The stoppage of the handshake does little to decrees contamination by objects – although it does leave few ‘sick’ hands to touch them – the contagion rates are less with objects as their infectivity decreases tremendously as they dry.  So  a good dry hand cleaner is still a good idea after ‘public places’ visits – door knobs, menus, sign in pens, etc., et al.

It’s almost amazing how a few simple tricks can keep you from getting sick.  BTW, if you have young children, forget about it, you’ll be exposed at home. Once the infection is in your home, you are done.

“The Fist Bump Manifesto

Bumping fists has a negative bro-stigma, but it’s better than shaking hands—in that it transmits significantly fewer bacteria. At a time of global concern that our antibiotics are becoming obsolete, new research shows how fist bumping could save lives.

“Closed-fist high-fives.” In 2008, that’s how a wide-eyed New York Times article described the confounding gesture Barack Obama was sharing with members of the media on the campaign trail, and later, famously, his wife.

The origin of the fist bump is a subject of concentrated but heated disagreement. Many narratives center on athletics, with historians of various sports claiming the fist bump as their creation. Athletes wanted to minimize the risk of dislocating a finger in a passing or celebratory handshake. The more aggressive, less formal fist bump was better suited to the cause, and it continues to evoke machismo and bro-ness.

Rejecting the patriarchy aside, the fist bump has science behind it—reason to hasten its integration as a formal gesture of gender-neutral respect. The handshake, its alternative, is unsanitary. The handshake is outdated in most places, born of a time when we might all be expected to be concealing sabers. It would make more sense for us to casually intertwine almost any other part of our bodies with those of strangers, lips and genitals the notable exceptions.

In research published recently by The Journal of Hospital Infection, surgeons at the West Virginia University set out to see if they can reduce the spread of infection by fist bumping instead of shaking hands.

So McClellan’s team had a small group of clean-handed research subjects shake and fist bump at various intervals. They then cultured the bacteria grown on their hands. The handshake exposed more than three times as much skin surface area as the fist bump, and the contact averaged 2.7 times longer. More bacteria were transmitted, as expected, with the handshake.

Now is a time of unprecedented concern about MRSA and other drug-resistant bacteria. Just this week in The Lancet, an esteemed group of British physicians wrote about the need for a global strategy: “Rarely has modern medicine faced such a grave threat. Without antibiotics, treatments for minor surgery to major transplants could become impossible. Infection-related mortality rates in developed countries might return to those of the early 20th century.” Preventive behavioral modifications, however small, could actually prove consequential.

Dr. Tom Feasby, dean of medicine at the University of Calgary, agrees that fist bumping is “a nice replacement of the handshake” as a flu-prevention strategy.”
