Attack of the Germs

Germs are something no one can avoid, they're everywhere.

A Western Kentucky University professor said any surface touched by people, like computer keyboards, door knobs and desks are full of germs.

Many people are carrying hand sanitizer and wipes to stay germ free, which might not be a bad idea.

A study conducted by a 13-year-old, Oregon boy, shows water fountains contain more germs than toilet water.

"I think it comes down to what kind of organisms are there. I'm not afraid of the organisms that are on the water fountain," said Dr. Rodney King.

But, should you be?

We conducted a similar experiment and put the germs to the test. The samples have to sit in an incubator for 24 hours.

We'll show you the results tomorrow at six.
