HOW GERMS GET ONTO HANDS & MAKE US SICK
Feces (poop) from people or animals is an important source of germs like Salmonella, E. coli 0157, and norovirus that cause diarrhea, and it can spread some respiratory infections like adenovirus and hand-foot-mouth disease. These kinds of germs can get onto hands after people use the toilet or change a diaper, but also in less obvious ways, like after touching, handling raw meats that have invisible amounts of animal poop on them.
A single gram of human feces which is about the weight of a paperclip can contain one trillion germs.(Center for Disease Control)
