The Most Dangerous and Dirtiest Part of Your Body


We all have that specific part of our body which we know oozes during any laborious activity or due to the lack of some TLC.

It may be the armpits (for most people), the reproductive area, the mouth or the feet.

But which of this is the most dangerous and dirtiest?

Now by dangerous, I mean which can part that can easily transfer diseases to us and other people.

No, it isn't your mouth, bad breath isn't communicable, it isn't your feet either..

It's your hands


The human hands are the most dangerous and dirtiest part of the human body and specifically, I am referring to your palms and fingers. We frequently touch our face, mouth, eyes and other parts of our body sometimes without realizing it.

They may look so innocent and beautiful and hairless, but alas they may be packed to capacity with germs


Our hands do so many things and many of us barely wash, mainly due to ignorance of where and what we touched

For example

Bathroom Breaks

50 - 90% of Nigerians don't wash after going to the bathroom. You, yes am talking to you, might be one of them.

When we go to pee, it is very easy for us to skip washing our hands, especially when we are in the office or maybe we took a quick pee break in the bush or even when there is no water in the toilet.

We do not know in reality the number of germs that are contracted just by visiting the bathroom alone.

  • The germs we contract from touching the handle of the door to the bathroom.
  • The germs we contract from touching the cover of the toilet seat etc

All these lead to the transfer of tons of germs between people.



Our fingers are the tools and equipment given the official task of picking off our nose, for most people that finger remains unwashed and same fingers are used to pick food sometime later and throw a handful of nutrients and germs down our digestive system.

Others include touching surfaces, scratching armpits and even touching other people which we do most of the times. 

Note: germs get into our bodies and cause diseases through openings such as mouth, nose, cuts etc and these germs be it bacteria, viruses or fungi are what make you sick.

The simple remedy would be to cultivate good habits, learn to wash after leaving the bathroom and learn to touch yourself less. Give your hands (fingers) some respect and don't use them to pick your nose.
