Herman Gives His Two Cents on Germs and Money

“Currency contains all sorts of traces of stuff, including illicit drugs and especially lots of germs,” Physician Assistant Studies Chair Lawrence Herman, RPA-C, tells The Weather Channel in "16 Germ-Infested Places and Things You Need to Know About."

Herman, who is also president of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, adds: “Just imagine where some of those dollar bills were ‘tucked.’”

Cell phones, kitchen sinks, cutting boards, and TV remotes were among the other items likely to hoard germs.
