(steve) in today's health minute-- reid binion has a closer look at the study and what you should do to avoid catching a cold or the flu. stuck at 30,000 feet with just inches of personal space, airplanes can be the perfect incubators for germs and disease.according to a new study in the journal "proceedings of the national academy of sciences," the best way to avoid getting sick is to book a window seat. the study found people with a window seat were less likely to get up to use the restoom or check the overhead bin, meaning they were less likely to come into contact with germs.researchers say lavatories are covered in germs, since there's usually only two of them on a flight of about 150 passengers. reasearchers also analyzed passenger movements and studied air samples. they found passengers sitting within two seats or one row away from sick person have an 80-percent chance of catching an illness, compared to passengers sitting further away. but for most of the other passengers in the cabin, the risk of catching anything is minimal.still you can lower your odds even more, by not
touching your face, and keeping your hands off the aisle seats.for today's health minute, i'm reid binion. bad news for the san bad news for the san francisco giants-- madison bumgarner fractures a bone on his pitching hand in his final spring season game. in the third inning against the kansas city royals a line drive hit mad bum's hand manager, bruce bochy pulled him out of the game immediately. the giants has not provided an official prognosis on bumgarner's injury according to a source -- mad bum will be sidelined six to eight weeks last season he missed nearly three months after injuring his left shoulder in a dirt bike accident he was expected to make his fifth straight
