Irwin Stromeyer offers tips on best ways to germ proof your airline seat and surrounding areas

Irwin Stromeyer of Sterile Space Infection Defense West Orange, NJ —  Irwin Stromeyer, Founder, Sterile Space Infection Defense, LLC, was recently quoted in Reader’s Digest.  The article, ‘This Is the Right Way to Germ-Proof Your Plane Seat,’ debunked some of the widely held myths that people get sick on an airplane from the coughing and sneezing of those around them.

Stromeyer elaborates, “You may think that you can get sick on a flight from breathing the air of fellow passengers who are coughing and sneezing. But people more often get infected by coming into contact with germs on a contaminated surface and touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. From there, the germs just need warmth, moisture, and a food supply to start multiplying. For example, in just eight hours, just one cell of E. coli can become a colony of more than 12 million cells.”
