By the standards of most U.S. surveys, an 83 percent overall compliance rate would be outstanding. But the issue is whether we wash our hands after using public restrooms, as researched by the American Society for Microbiology and the Soap and Detergent Association. The trade group found that 75 percent of men and 90 percent of women do (with higher percentages saying that they do when they donâ€™t — tsk, tsk). The differences between male and female plumbing are real, but so is the public health risk posed by those who flush and dash. Didnâ€™t our mothers teach us better than this?
