Is Your Shower Making You Sick?
I bet you never thought you had to worry about germs here-but according to a new study, that shower head harbors all kinds of bacteria that comes spraying into your face every time you shower. The researchers say for most people with normal immune systems, it shouldn't be a concern. But for people with compromised immune systems, it could be a real problem. They recommend using metal shower heads as bacteria have a harder time clinging to it. They also recommend cleaning your shower head with bleach once a week.
