Does the Office Make You Sick?
If you're not cooking, then eating at your desk still can pose a health threat, especially if you have to leave your desk and don't return for an hour or so, it gives bacteria plenty of time to breed. And dirty desktops don't do workers any favors, either.Phones and keyboards can harbor up to 400 times more bacteria than a typical toilet, according to experts! Answer the call while eating, and you may transfer that bacteria to your food. Flip your keyboard to see how many crumbs fall out - the more, the merrier when it comes to bacteria on your desk. The good news is that sweeping an antibacterial wipe daily over those surfaces can prevent illness.
