Our consumer society shares a special relationship with germs. The invisible microorganisms are the arch-villain for many a product, be it bathing soap to hand sanitizers. Somehow, germs are pure evil—and they are. But this is too much of a blanket statement. As a recent article here at Geeky Gadgets pointed out, bacteria actually help strengthen our immune systems over time. But is anyone listening?
American scientists from the University of Georgia think they’ve developed a yet unnamed spray on that could disinfects objects and surfaces completely. By completely is meant not just 99% of bacteria, but 100%. There will be nada left.
Of course, this instantly brings to mind ever more potent sanitary products for home use. But according to the very people that created it, this new yet unnamed spray is ideal in a medical setting to curb infections. Hospitals are actually awful places when it comes to contamination. On top of the food being bad in general, hospital related infections after surgery and other procedures happen with alarming regularity.
Stay tuned for more news on whether this newfangled spray on gets the benefit of becoming a commercial product.
