- A recent study has found that fist bumps are more hygienic than handshakes and drastically reduce the risk of spreading infectious diseases.
- Notably, the humble fist bump transfers approx 90 per cent less bacteria than a handshake.
- The research was performed by UK researchers and published in the August edition of the American Journal of Infection Control.
- The research was carried out by counting the number of bacteria transferred between sterile rubber gloves after the exchange of different greeting gestures.
