Okay.. I have pretty much gotten used to the massive amount of hand shaking that goes on in Peru, and in fact have come to appreciate and enjoy the way it brings people a little closer together. Then, I saw this: http://9gag.tv/v/2017
I struggle thinking this could ever fly here... imagine Humala bro punching Garcia... but hey.. thought the video was food for thought, pretty comical, and worth sharing.
Looking forward to some comments!
Surely the logical conclusion should be no contact at all, not,fist punching! And then also just staying in your house as going out will also increase risks of infection. Plus handwashing around 50 times a day.
I go with the view that our bodies have evolved to work best with a certain amount of exposure to germs to help generate resistance. In my book anyone who gets ill because they haven't developed a resistance to germs through avoiding physical contracts deserves to get ill.
I have no scientific evidencee for this view but I know it is true because I want it to be.
